My work stems from past, present and future concerns regarding communication, technology and manufacturing. It focuses on the impact on society and our awareness of it. My desire is to inform the viewer of these procedures and substances in our lives, which are often overlooked or disregarded due to the constant bombardment of information through numerous forms of media, leaving us numb from their unrelenting persistence. To contemplate, challenge, and possibly accept these findings compels me to create with bygone implements.
With the ever-increasing speed and advancement of manufactured goods, it promptly renders a current product(s) obsolete. We forget that with each cycle, new products are supplied within ever-increasing pace from their prior version. We, as a society, demand and expect these modern conveniences to continuously evolve without concern of the consequences that follow.
Together, with these fleeting technologies, imagery, Electroacoustic audio, and interactive electronics, my work presents new meaning to not only a found object on a pedestal or a wall, but for viewer interaction of the work and reflection upon the issues presented.
Drawing inspiration from Duchamp, Koons, Paik, and Hamilton I find the domestic object engaging and instrumental in its substance to my work. Not only as an entry point for the viewer, but that it transcends the original understanding of the object and its physical properties.
With the amalgamation of these elements, it is my wish to create a greater experience while avoiding estrangement with the viewer. Through the tactile quality of an object, social commentary and interactive experience I invite the viewer to look past the initial for greater comprehension.
