artist statement







for the past few years, i’ve been collaborating with artist james rouvelle as
part of the maya + rouvelle artist duo.

maya + rouvelle began in 2009 in new york. we integrate traditional and emerging
media into objects and installations that change over time often in response
to environmental variables. electronic and computational media, fixtures
of contemporary culture, add material and conceptual dimensions to our work.
at present, sound and performance play prominent roles in our collaboration.

personally, i enjoy working with fragments, with the edges of things and what
they suggest about systems (psychological or physical / natural or constructed)
– edges bring the work closer to gaps where binaries collapse/blur/integrate/
oscillate – where ambiguity may reveal truth.
