Ambiguity in information and information in ambiguity.
Two questions drive my work: how to explore social concerns through art and how to manipulate and collaborate with a medium without dominating it. Let a twist be an expansion.
With photography and digital media, I’ve examined a range of themes—gender, advertising, the internet and social media, environmental, cultural, and social issues—all through challenging a process, conceptual groundwork, engaging chance and error, and pattern matching.
My undergraduate degree is a Bachelors of Science in Art, owing to three years I spent studying chemistry, physics, math, etc. in a pharmacology program before turning to art. After graduation I worked primarily in photography. In 1994, I was fortunate enough to join the team at ada’web, a digital foundry commissioning artists to use the web as a medium. It became my medium, too. In the early 2000’s, for various reasons, my exhibition train derailed. Here’s to getting back on track.
