Sapient_2.021 official TRAILER


Interdisciplinary Artist

I am a socially engaged artist with a background in jewelry design/metalsmithing and mechanical engineering. Through experimental practices, I explore new ways to build connection and empathy through movement. I create artworks using custom-designed technology, traditional mediums, and social interactions. Employing embodied experience, I create collaborative performances and participatory workshops using Manibus (my motion-controlled painting robot.) Explore my updated Selected Work page to get a glimpse at my process and view some of my proudest accomplishments. My current project, is a short film titled Sapient_2.021 combining dance, robotics, and visual art to explore what it means to be human in a tech-saturated world.


"It was a dissatisfaction with the limitations of pure abstract painting.  Nobody knew what the work could or should look like. Each individual's freedom was encouraged. Since nobody knew what the new art should look like, each of us was free to invent our own solution."

George Segal
