I am interested in the way we cultivate and harvest ideas that relate to the creation of the zeitgeist. I follow trending ideas within popular culture religiously to collect or monitor various streams of information to use with or to exploit my concepts. These rich sources act as catalysts for the dialog of larger issues that I don't think get enough attention. In my research, I have found that society is constantly trying to censor individuals within it for the gain of the majority. From the Falun Gong movement in China to the recent Wikileaks events around the world, I see censorship and as an important issue that I am constantly addressing, whether in the abstract or figurative most of the time it is not immediately recognizable. This issue can have a profound effect on how societal issues are perceived or reacted to. My work uses different methods of creation to find the end result, informing the work itself. I use programming code, digitally found and created image and object, various technologies, video and photography to inspire my thoughts and to create my work. These new and dynamic modes of visualization provide me with a post medium dialog to express my ideas in.
