My work is involves many processes, from traditional to experimental, but always engages the use of digital technology. To me, the process of creating, saving and then using digital matter emulates how our own experiences are translated to memory and stored in our brains. Just as there is a balance between the mind and the body for our existence, I find a balance between the physical forms of my work and the digital process it took to make it.
Though my work seems varied in medium and content, there is always a connection to American history, physicality and an emphasis on everyday lives. I like to find clues of inner psyche through the display of physical evidence. Like a forensic scientist looking at bones to discover how someone died or lived, or a cultural anthropologist looking at the remains of a civilization for historical truth. I do this but on a much smaller mundane scale. I’m interested in the stuff of contemporary lives, the things in the present. These observations can be piles of trash or the books on a bookshelf or subtle twitches of body language.
