This series of videos, Chief Resource Management Officer, decontextualizes and amplifies mundane tasks and actions, exposing an inherent absurdity and dry humor. Conceptually and visually, I engage themes of corporate management structures, cult dynamics, and Sisyphean tasks. Within this work, I am primarily interested in developing situations that disrupt familiar social and political hierarchies. Utilizing recognizable apparel and gestures, I playfully occupy the threshold of absurdity while asking questions about time, value, routines, and the monetization of work and/or presence.
