"Tell Me The Whole Story" expresses the coming-of-age narrative of a group of teenagers while confronting a fetishized attitude towards youth culture. Photographs, letters, and collaged imagery were attached to a painted sheet of galvanized steel via neodymium magnets. During the exhibition, viewers were invited to handle and explore the components of the piece. By encouraging viewer participation, the audience is drawn into the private lives of these characters.

“Drug Mandala” plays upon the concept of the mandala— the representation of the universe in Buddhist and Hindu thought. In this Westernized interpretation, the mandala has been reworked into a colorful, board game-like display. A closer inspection of the geometric figures alludes to the presence of drugs— both illicit and pharmaceutical— saturated throughout the piece. “Drug Mandala” calls to attention the abundance of chemical worship in modern American society.
