Statement:

My interests circulate around particular areas of the New Media Art spectrum,
specifically, work that incorporates discarded technologies. My aesthetic sensibility
tends to pursue encounters with wonderment, combining visual representations with new
deformations.

I use obsolete technology to create “no-input” systems that produce their own inherent
visual and audial elements. Antiquated AV equipment is devalued in our society where
“newer is better.” An item that was priced at ten thousand dollars in 1983 is perceived as
trash in 2013. Analog technology is inherently more malleable than digital. In my work,
antiquated machines create new and informed back leaps forward.
