Artist Statement

My work is about exploring what it means to be human in the digital age.  Attempting the synthesis of organic and digital forms, of wood grain and circuit boards.  Using mathematics and science as tools to manifest the magic we see in our collective human dreams- I believe that mystical nature is what drives us forward to explain the phenomena of the universe that we do not yet understand.

As new technologies ever-more rapidly develop, one of the jobs of the artist is to help drive the awareness and prevalence of these technologies- often introducing the public to new ideas for the first time.  By utilizing interactive platforms, mixed mediums and the newest techniques we can create playful and collaborative works of art that teach as much as they delight.
