My work consists primarily of interpretations of people lives while on the internet. Now more than ever, there is an opportunity to create artworks exploring everyday human interactions with technology.

Artist Statement

The relationship between technology and humans is an ever-changing landscape that seems to develop on its own. The constant evolution of image use and utter dependency of its users begs a question of how a person exists online and how it informs their analog life. I’m interested in the expectations that are present when viewing digital works and aim to create work outside of these presumptions by using Film, 3D Rendering, and other digital media. Part of my practice also involves discovering the way in which people interpret real life versus technology. In my Virtual Reality work, Pre-Exhibition, the viewer is placed in an unfinished gallery space with the artist, giving an intimate look at the private space of the creator yet taking away any interactivity and information. My overall goal in works such as this is to utilize expectation and meaning when it comes to digital worlds and web based content, to explore notions of memory, time, and existence in the technological era.
