I express my ideas through software. My newest software artwork is concerned with the
stability of patterns and how patterns change over time. Software is the medium that
allows me to write about change and observe change. It is not like other time-based
media (e.g. video, film, and computer animation) where the image sequences are
prerecorded. The images my software generates are created as they are viewed and never
My project is to create a library of original software tools that will be the foundation for future
software artworks. In order to keep up with the overwhelming expansion in computer hardware and
software, I need a library of code tools that will serve as the basis for my art appliances and interactive
book projects. I am looking for funding that will give me time to step back and evaluate all the new game
engines, 3D graphics cards and languages (like nVidia's GPU), the new openGL 2.0 standards, and
Apple's new development environment for Intel chips. With this information I plan to write a library of
tools that takes advantage of newer technologies and expands my existing work in emergence and system
simulations. This retooling project is necessary because of the large changes to computer technology in
the past six years.
The project will be to develop a new style in my software artwork that will combine
video elements with programmed computer graphics. My interest is to explore the
developing interconnections and dependencies between a human's daily cycle and the
programmed loops of computer systems.
