Adam explores the porous boundaries between body/environment, humanity/monstrosity, and fantasy/reality through site-specific monster costumes. Equal parts puppet and prosthetic, these monsters impose new embodiments, movements, and identities on their wearers and bring uncanny encounters into everyday places.
