Approximate Knowledge explores the ways in which surroundings affect individuals and perception. Many of these works visualize the tension originating from common domestic situations and the subsequent corporeal reactions from individuals. Juxtapositions between the inflexible and the malleable represent the stress inherent to fast-paced, high-stakes contemporary living. Architectural elements, precariously balanced, reveal the tenuous separation between public and private life as increasing pressure breaks down carefully constructed social barriers and boundaries. Abstracted representations of the human form refer to the degradation of the physical body in response to internalized psychological stress.
