Much of my early life was informed by the television show Pinwheel and early video games like Zelda and Mario Brothers. One of my earliest memories is sitting in my dad’s orange Pinto listening to “Arthur’s Theme.”
Thinking of my childhood in the 1980’s, I am drawn to LED dots and cross-stitching, plastic materials, fluorescent light fixtures, pixels, stripes, stop motion animation, and open appropriation. I am also very interested in the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze, particularity his ideas of cinema and the plane of immanence.
I am also engaged in a series of collaborations with Steve Page, an artist from Brooklyn. We send pieces in the mail and have dialogues with each other as the work changes from one state to the next.
