Statement
My technique is continuously evolving. The first pieces with a design similar to the current state were developed around 09’. There are many influences that define this imagery from the fragmentation of online video feeds to the visual and musical sampling so prevalent in our media. Almost all of the content we are exposed to in audio, print and screen, is created through a program in layers. The layering is also physical representation of String Theory's predicted dimensions, the current concept of the multiverse. Having been classically trained the Golden Section is often used as well as Fractal Geometry, which is more current and relevant to what is actually going on in nature. All life on earth for the first 3 billion years was in fractal form like the organic version of digital sampling. It seems this has always been a the theme of our space-time continuum, technology is just a remix.

Tech. Specs.
This process is collage, with a combination of archival ink jet on a variety of papers and Duralar. They’re mounted with PH neutral laminates to materials such as Sintra, ultra thin aluminum, and museum grade matt board on a base of plexiglass. The layers of plexi are welded together.
