Artist's Statement

What constitutes data, anyway? Data (information) and the collection of data (narratives surrounding information) can be interpreted emotionally, psychologically, expansively.

By pairing abstraction and 'informative' display, my drawings, animations, sound work and installations put forth my fictional interpretation of this information and the processes that produce it. It is as much an intellectual process as an emotional one. Inventing the slow, abstract narratives that surround these technologies allows for the transformation of this data from something scientific into something visceral, suggestive and open-ended.
