Almost every aspect of culture that is created today is deeply dependent on technology for its production. Through litigation, the digital millennium act, and laws against reverse engineering, various forces attempt to tum the individual into a passive consumer as opposed to an active creator of culture. My interest in fostering unexpected, creative and unsanctioned uses of technology in the production of art is in direct support of the idea that technology is a tool which can be used by any motivated individual. It is not my expectation that every collaboration I work on will become an elaborate media experiment, but that the work will convey the idea that technology is a medium available to anyone with interest and research skills, empowering the individual's relationship to the use of technology in cultural production.
