In my work I push my boundaries with various media. I explore architectural spaces as well as digital spaces, making projects that are both site specific and unexpected. My work juxtaposes images of old and new cities reflecting a sense of nostalgia for the past, contrasted with wonder about the future. The works mirror the experience of navigating a charged metropolitan area. Through a bombardment of disparate images my pieces celebrate the complexity and unpredictability of urban space. A walk through the city becomes a vehicle for a meditation on space, time, and human interaction. I am interested in the patterns, structure and design of the urban environment. Rather than document the cities I see, I employ media-generated representations of contemporary and historic cities as raw material for aesthetic and social explorations. Using these appropriated images and texts, I make individual photo collages, multi-media installations, public artworks, artist's books, and net art projects.
