Like karaoke and confessional diary websites, I am interested in mutated relationships of audience and performer.
I love that moment between fan and star, or fan and camera, where self-consciousness and a mob mentality meet.
My work draws on the parallel between entertainment and religion and points to the modern transcendental nature of fame.
