Artist Statement Submitted 2015

Only the inaccessible and elusive is truly alluring, and what could be more inaccessible or elusive than the past? The allure of the unattainable and its connection to the passage of time have become central to my research. Drawing from areas as diverse as natural history, architecture and the history of technology, I am engaged in an investigation of what lies at the intersection of cinema, computation, music and physical space. By employing motion and sound in my work, I incorporate the passage of time as a compositional element in an attempt to more closely examine abstract and often intangible topics such as memory, thought, emotion, language and the essence of self.
