My grandfather was an electrician, he repaired TVs, radios, and just about anything electronic. As a child I worked alongside my father in the garage as he restored cars. I never learned too much about cars but I learned how to use the tools. My mother was a painter. This is how my work came to be, from their influence. They supplied me with the ability to manipulate media to build certain ideas.
I have always felt my work is an exercise in problem solving, both on material and subconscious levels. If I become comfortable with a medium or a process I have to find new ways to complicate it by preparing obstacles for myself to overcome in the future. Remove these elements of chance and the process would be without progress for me. I want to make mistakes and I want to find myself questioning my motives, constantly.
Recently my work has been evolving
away from it's original visual parameters. This
has a lot to do with my original process becoming
so autonomous and executable. Plus the availability
of certain technologies has allowed me explore these
vast new areas of sound, and movement. So now with
my obstacles in place my creative lease has been renewed.
