ARTIST STATEMENT

I’ve found that removing aspects of a discrete location morphs a particular ‘where’ into an ‘anywhere’ locale, a phenomenon that makes the space simultaneously inaccessible and seductive. I want to test what happens when information is removed and only white, flat, emptiness holds its place. The resulting series is best described as a series of ‘white spaces.’ The works are a visual recollection of specific moments of travel, racked by the failures of human memory as represented by a computer. This series chronicles changing civilizations, the death of the industrial way of life and ominous persisting presence of the pixilated world.
