I project botanical imagery onto walls, floors and sculptural elements.  Fragments from the natural world are melded with non-natural techniques to create subtly impossible, hybrid tableaus.  These electronically-forged composites place the viewer in a conversation between their memories of the natural world, and a new, mediated experience of a plant or flower.

There’s a sublimity that results from the convergence of technology with what we consider the natural.  The way that humans experience nature more frequently, through the mediation of the computer or television, unsettles and inspires me.  I am intrigued by how that experience can be enjoyable, illuminating, and disturbing simultaneously.
