Artist's Statement

Through my work, I investigate politics, war, work, play, protest and human/machine relations. The work is about the contingency of actions, objects, images, experiences and beliefs. The intent is to create works that are formally and aesthetically engaging while conceptually connecting with the everyday; to reify the ordinary into the extraordinary; to question social and political realities in both the real and the virtual. Research projects include investigations of kinetic electromechanical sculptures; projected surveillance video installations; online interventionist protests/performance works; and the ubiquitous desktop mouse as object and cultural icon. In all the work, the intent is to find the connections between concept, object, interaction and environment.
