My artwork explores the intersections of "big-science" and contemporary culture, explicating questions and concerns about how these domains relate to the individual as subject. What is our relationship to machines and machine-like processes, and how do they effect our relationship to others and even to our own bodies? How do broadcast media, telecommunications and bio-technology impact our desires and needs, and, conversely, how do these subjective impulses impact the meanings, operations and development of such information systems? Such are a few of the broad issues informing my work. I frequently take a sociological approach to these issues by creating interactive artwork contingent upon viewer response and participation. However, unlike much traditional sociology or critique following the entrenched condition of "objective research", my work does not seek clinical detachment from its foci.
