I am interested in exploring the convergence of technology, desire, and personal mythology into a thickly layered stratum of images and objects reflecting systems within the body, nature, and imagination. I create large-scale installations that immerse viewers into a fantastic universe where micro and macro systems converge, bizarre creatures mutate and thrive, and the subconscious and imagination are free. The work is not a literal translation of natural systems, but the extraction and recombination of ideas and images to create subliminal landscapes defying laws of nature and convention. These installations encourage viewers to contemplate humanity's relationship to nature in an age of rapid technological advances.
Through the delicate combination of organic and synthetic materials - plastic, fluid, light, and metal - biomorphic forms and otherworldly environments emerge and are encoded with the potential for growth, expansion, and regeneration.
The process, materials, and structures synthesize to create a collision of substances organic and mechanical, real and dream.
