“Old computer cases are transformed into abstract apartments and buildings, and the patterns on circuit boards function as the grid of city streets. Small figures placed inside the computer cities are unexpected. Once we have found a lone figure, we cannot help but wonder if there is another. This search engages us within the miniature world, and we find that moment of disconnect when we straddle the line that separates ourselves from our observations. We become both the observer and the observed.”
