The artist's statement: I'm interested in the permanence of digital media and the ethereal experience of viewing it. Once you click away from a video it stops for you, but it continues to exist without you. I use 2D and 3D programs to explore our relationship with this ethereal experience. The push and pull we feel from using these advanced machines and algorithms to regulate our moods. There is a constant flow of content to consume leaving something for everyone online. This leads me to produce a wide variety of media and formats. All my pieces are still tied together through the reliance on digital fabrication and housing. My workspace is inside a computer and many of my pieces cannot be separated from the workspace.
