"Many of the current practices in contemporary art are derived directly from modern art movements such as dada, futurism, and the situationist international. I have found that researching these early instances of interventionist, experiential, and participatory art in conjunction with the recent resurgence of these practices in today's contemporary art has helped me to contextualize my work and the work of my peers."
