Disarm is a collage and drawing project examining the historical legacy and impact of the Cold War-era US Nike missile program within a 21st-century framework. Disarm re-purposes and neutralizes abandoned military spaces through archival photographs, collage, ink, and gouache. Images of underground missile silos, decontamination showers, guard stations, launch pads, and missiles are transformed into places of growth and activation.
