Statement

My work incorporates the use of technology and everyday ephemera that is utilized by a mass audience, who are habitually adapting and naturally incorporating these devices into their everyday lives. Specifically, I have looked closely at the way we create, retrieve, circulate and store images. My work utilizes a combination of art making techniques that alternate between digital processes and traditional modes of art making (material manipulations). Many of these works created within this framework, creates a physical form for something previously intangible and mutable.

Using myself as starting point, I look at my own tendencies towards digital material production and desire for coproduction through my engagement with E-commerce websites and social media. I carefully track and consider how my behavior changes throughout the course of my interaction. My work progresses through an endless series of systems whose logic is highly personal, complex and intuitive.
