Attached is a PDF of images from my presentation. I am interested in microscopic-to-macroscopic transformations, bringing the very small up to human dimensions or beyond. My primary source of inspiration is the natural world and the living beings that inhabit it.

Once again, I am very interested in the intersection of science and art, particularly physics and art. My work often attempts to reveal things not normally visible for humans or attempts to visualize things that are not even physical.
Here's a PDF of the presentation -
I left out the video which just showed an in process period of the sculpture Tsuruleo. It gave an idea of the kind of movement I'm interested in - a person wearing a sculpture and bringing it to life; the wearer is forced to move like the creature and is limited and restricted yet also freed to move in different ways depending on the anatomy of the body of the creature.
I'm interested in body extensions in this way - elongating or shortening certain bone structures to bring forth a different kind of movement that isn't human, but is rather a hybrid of human and animal movement.
I have always been interested in the animal body, and it has taken shape in my art through sculpture and 3D forms.
I'm interested in making life size sculptures that people can interact with; and also in costuming and allowing the artist to wear the sculpture to bring it to a new level of aliveness. I'm skilled in working with just about any medium but am drawn towards wood, metal (wire), plastic, and fabric.
Below is a copy of my presentation in PDF form. Check out the links I've posted below as well to get a better sense of my experience and interests with biological bodies. Thanks!
Here's my website. It's a bit outdated, but has better descriptions about some of the projects I showed in my presentation.
Here's are links to other artists I've worked with who in some way incorporate biological bodies into their work, whether they work with them directly or make content about them:
