I picked up the German word, "hintergedanken," from Alan Watts, and this is the definition I received: "A hintergedanken is a thought way, way, way, in the back of your mind. Something you know deep down but can't admit."
This piece lightly touches on, as Louisianans and New Orleanians, our relationship and identity with the environment and city we love on one hand, and the industry on which we depend on the other. The past decade has proven how uncomfortable this relationship is.

I began developing as an artist in Lafayette, LA, my hometown. After a transformative summer at Interlochen Arts Camp, I went on to study at the Lafayette Parish High School Arts Academy under Kathy Reed. I then studied Visual Art and Urban Studies at Brown University. After graduating in May 2013, I moved to New Orleans to practice art and to work as a graphic & architectural designer and planner. I've shown my work in galleries in Lafayette, LA, Shreveport, LA, Providence, RI, and New Orleans.
