Artist's Statement

Across my varied modes of output there is simultaneously a sense of reverence (infatuation) for technology, as if it is a thing just out of reach but of great interest, but also a sense of contempt for it (because it doesn’t stay still), as if it is something unnatural in a natural world. Images and content from popular films, nature and daily life are re-interpreted through my "literal" filter. The when, where and who are thrown into the air, and I don’t offer solutions about how to bring the pieces back together. The work is a cause for disorientation and can be anxiety-inducing; however, I believe it is my playfulness and attempts to be meditative in execution about who and where I (we) really am that lasts longest.
