Artist Statement

Faux Tableaux - is an ongoing series of looping videos that demonstrate the peculiar circumstances of digital observation. These videos feature animated characters, objects, and previously made artworks set within sterile tableaux. The contents within each scene seamlessly move, their actions are informed by the scenarios taking place. The environments in the videos are solely constructed in the computer as digital space is usurping (if not already seized) our referencing habits to objects in reality. These video tableaux are calculated and sardonic; they serve as imagined demonstrations that catalog the digital effect has over perception and attempt to unveil the control certain technologies have/will have on our relationship to art and culture.

Image Lexicons - is a body of work that engages both current events exclusively perceived through the transmission of digital images and the abstract material of these images (pixels). By replacing every type character contained within the ASCII code I design typographic marks that ultimately function as a visible lexicon for viewing digital images. The results of these processes are then output through self-built 3d printers and CNC routers - utilized for the purposes of their operational transparency. This practice is a reference to the idea contained within the German term bildpunkt, meaning picture-point and Vilém Flusser’s theory of concretizing abstract particles through imaging apparatuses and writing. In this practice I create my own sets of idiosyncratic marks to stand in for pixels to better understand our experience of visual history through digital propagation. As technical images are generating their own language in communicating information the substance of these images are of concern within this body of work to which importance is placed upon manufacturing them through a typographic practice.
