My installations at St. Agnes as part of the Die Ausstellung show in Berlin, December 2018
During the Fall semester of 2018 I took a studio art class at St. Agnes studios, creating, designing and curating a show of my work (along with other student artists).
Titled "the deconstructed berlin trash diary" I created personal pieces inspired by the scenery of Berlin filtered through my eyes and experiences (see more in the artist statement). My works included installations constructed from discarded objects, a "poster wall" mirroring those around Berlin littered with discarded posters, trash and my own analog photos, a short film series "Berlin Diary" (film, 15 minutes) displayed on an old TV I had found and a living shopping cart sculpture (see the <mobile.garden.cart> piece here).

Part of my short film series on my time in Berlin, composed of iPhone footage and voice memos I recorded over the semester. I recorded things I found beautiful in a lo-fi, spur of the moment way, combining footage thematically over my voice recordings to form a diary of impromptu thoughts and moments.
