Artist Statement

I am interested in how light operates in the production of images and how visual technologies influence our ideas of opticality. Telescopes pioneered our ability to span distance visually, as navigators, explorers, and astronomers sought to observe distant places and the stars. While early telescopes required hand drawn record keeping, film created more accurate and archival renderings that expanded our spatial, temporal, and social relationship to images. Moreover, film facilitated the development of still and moving image projectors beginning with Victorian magic lanterns, zoetropes, etc., subsequently laying the groundwork for digital imaging. Additionally, programs like Apollo 11, the Hubble Telescope, and Mars Rovers have further expanded our visual technologies and the possibilities of remote vision.
Through my practice I distill seemingly complex optical phenomena into low tech approximations or analogies. While intricate, my sculptures are relatively simply constructed with hand cut and glued making materials—like, foam core and styrene. With simple systems of mirrors and lenses, my sculptures create or capture images, such that they approach the complexity machines. Additionally, I incorporate photography and video with my sculptures as documentation, process, and content. In my drawing process, I analogies to lens based media, like photography, print making, and 3-D films.
