Artist Statement

 

Nicolas Bourriaud writes that with computer graphics it is now possible that images are the outcome of calculation and no longer gestures. Contemporary images no longer represent the tract of anything, unless it be that of a sequence of numbers.

To deconstruct this process — or lack thereof — is to examine the bi-directional transference of context between the digital and the material. The rapid advancement of digital technology and the internet on a multitude of platforms in our everyday life creates new and invasive personal relationships with images. Thus, a disconnect lies in the lack of physicality of digital “space.” My work explores the physicality of a “digital object” and the interactions that this platform brings.

Through the re imagining of digital objects and expected space, I plays with the illusion of depth. By creating physical forms that make the viewer question their falsehood and the bi-directional transference of context between the digital and the material.
