"Experience unites all of us, but the way in which we experience is individual and unique. My work is an exploration of experience - as a meeting place of physical media, ephemeral algorithms and time-based evolution, gathered around the temporarily stable fulcra of ideas."
"Advances in technology are only iterations on media. Today's technology is tomorrow's antique. Materiality, sensation and presence always remain core components of human experience. My work is driven by experience, as expressed by assemblages of the recently possible."
