Hello ︎ ︎
I’m Mo. My artwork is interdisciplinary and often collaborative — blending physical material, craft, social practice, and multimedia performance. In this combined approach, I explore how the ingredients of labor and what people “do” affect various relationships. My projects tell stories that connect people with the places and material they interact with, asserting that tactile learning with and from others is a necessary method of relating.
Scavenge, searching, layers, and discard are all parts of my process. Inspiration for new projects comes from uncovering things that are left-behind, and this leads me to dig through histories and visible remnants of the past in order to imagine future possibilities. I develop work with context- and site-specific perspectives to identify active, overlooked elements wherever I am.
Currently, Mo is pursuing an MFA in Art and Social Practice at Portland State University. Her artworks, designs, and research projects have appeared in galleries, theaters, museums, public spaces, and local organizations. Additionally, she continues to freelance in theatrical scenic design, fabrication, scenic painting, and architectural/object conservation. She is a co-founder of the south-central Pennsylvania performance collective Valley Traction. Want to collaborate or get more information? Inquire via email and visit the links below.
