I am interested in the physical creation of information. Pushing the underlying properties of conscious formation, I investigate four-dimensional reality’s compression into data’s flat imago.
Consciousness necessitates the containment, preservation and catalog of experience. Consequently, the mind presses reality into 2d images of symbol and memory. Sculptural reality becomes pictorial. Attempting to fasten experience, these mechanisms create zombie abstractions of existence, themselves devoid of real life. Yet, despite all coercion to fix existential dynamism, to still and distill life, change remains irrepressible. Photos fade, symbols change, memories mutate, and the tightly bound self disperses vaporously into everything.
