I am fascinated by the stories we tell ourselves about our bodies and the technologies that increasingly mediate our experience of them. We use imaging technologies to help us remember. We leave traces in countless databases. Communications technologies extend our voices, eyes, hands, and 'presence' in space. Biotechnologies peer into us. Often the speed of life via information technologies is too fast for actual bodies to keep up. Exploring the boundaries of bodies and technologies drives much of my creative activity.
