About

Through images, digital multimedia, and installation work, I seek to exploit the absurdities and beauty present in our reactionary global mainstream culture and carve out new territory in digital experiences. I use body movement, choreography and visual effects to create dynamic and dreamlike experiences. I hope to provoke critical thought, a sense of wonder, and playfulness through my work.

Clay received a Bachelor of Arts in Art from Reed College, Portland, Oregon.
