experiments are constructed based on scientific concepts and principles.
The work explores a photograph’s ability to display a complex theory. Images are found and
curated from Wikipedia’s archive, then re-created and re-photographed by the artists. By
sourcing imagery from Wikipedia, Disambiguation
deals with the dissemination of a
scientific principle through a visual representation. Images are then placed back into Wikipedia
under their original pages. From that point it is up to the user-based community to approve or
remove the demonstrative, artist made images.

takes a philosophical and psychological look at perspective and the function
of the 'personal lens' through presented layered and fractured imagery. It illuminates the intricacies
of vision and probes notions of 'reality' or 'truth'. These 3 works attempt to demonstrate a sort of
'non-vision'. I investigate the question: What do I see when I look at nothing? When I close my eyes?
An image inevitably still appears.
According to quantum mechanics we have forty conscious moments per second, and our brains
connect this sequence of nows to create the illusion of the flow of time. So, what would things look
like if that itermittence was made visible? This body of work explores that hiccup, that blink, that
ubiquitous fissure in the falling-into-place of things.

faith in their perception, my work relies on intuition and is responsive, fluid, and contextual.

'Recent Bedrooms' Recently
Portrait of my piece Recent Bedrooms
at home, on my bedroom floor, post-gallery life.
This was the first art piece I made after moving to New York and the first of my works to be
shown in a small NY gallery. On opening night, it was the only piece in the show the
curators didn't have time to hang, so it sat on the floor, against the wall, unlabeled.
Take something ugly, and make it beautiful 24 hours
With this small I had a little help from the mouse which enjoys spending time in my kitchen.
If I could catch the mouse, I’m sure he would have appeared in this response,
but unfortunately he just leaves his droppings.
