Whether building websites from scratch, generating abstract video portraits with recursive machine-learning AI, mounting steel plate carvings with fishing hooks, or painting portraits of schoolgirls on skinned and tanned bunny hides, I seek to infiltrate the strange spaces where rationality and empiricist philosophy collapse into delirium and drift.

Machines and animals are both organized bodies. All knowledge can be broken down to constituent parts: cells, atoms, grids and codes. All constellations of these fundamental parts are fictions. Fragmentation and re-organization are frontiers for new knowledge.

By treating the objective as subjective, philosophy as poetry, and the concrete as indeterminate, we can begin to infiltrate the strange matter that slips between the cracks. I’m invested in the place where data turns to fiction. By inverting grids and data structures on their heads, I stress the subjective assumptions of complex technologies. By doing so, I can speak about the violence embedded in our shared technological and historical landscapes.
