My work investigates the slippery intersection between the digital world and reality. Specifically, I am interested in how we experience nature through a television or a computer screen. Readily available images make us believe that we “know” these natural objects but we really only identify patterns of pixilated light. Recently I have been creating a series of what I call “Re-Things.” These whimsical objects are sculptural representations of digital information that symbolize objects of nature. Through the process of pixilation, some bits of information are lost and the form is abstracted. I see my building process as an experiment in alchemy using man-made composite materials to represent natural forms.
