My art practice intersects with my roles as a documentarian, educator, and activist. Using my own photography or re-appropriated objects and images, I am invested in aesthetic politics and creating tactical interventions within social, cultural, and political contexts. My projects come in the form of billboards, life size cardboard cut-outs, performances, and multimedia installations. I have also created work that has a presence within non-art spaces, functioning as legal evidence or archive.
Recently, I created projects for The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Immigration & Customs Enforcement, Department of Illegal Superheroes (ICE DISH). If undocumented people can be declared “illegal” due to our government’s current immigration policies and framing done by the media, then it is ICE DISH’s view that the same must be applied to undocumented superheroes. ICE DISH’s mission is to enforce this idea by raising awareness about the issue, conducting further investigations, and working towards the detainment and deportation of illegal superheroes. Currently, illegal superheroes -Superman, Supergirl, Thor, and others- are being held by DISH at the re-commissioned Immigration Station at Angel Island (State Park).
