I use my art & facilitation to transform individual witness into collective action. As a queer, transnational adoptee, my work work resists ways the state hijack individual & collective bodies to fulfill their own performances of power across imaginary borders & boundaries.  In my time Take A Breath residency program, I want to use my creative practices as an invitation for folks to consider systems of family regulation, surveillance, and policing: institutions and practices that impact adopted, fostered, and trafficked people (in childhood and adulthood,) as well as parents, and other kin — all who face the threat and reality of family separation at the hands of the state and organized money, public and private.
