I am concerned with notions of truth, and making invisible phenomena visible,
while drawing attention to the nuances of communication and perception by gathering,
recording and rendering it accessible in a visual form. There are many different layers in
my work. When viewed through the lens of conceptual, performance and installation art,
they bridge between interior, exterior, mental, physical and virtual realms. I also think of
my work as abstract art, in the sense that the viewer recognizes abstract imagery as
having an actual correlation to them, and can act to form a unity of consciousness of the
embodiment of our selves. I am continually exploring notions of transformation, energy
transfer, bridging the conscious and unconscious realms, and depicting the invisible
visible through action and reaction. The results manifest themselves either as an action or
object, and continue to live through extensive documentation. I see the process of
creation as an integral part of the work, as important as the result. In this way, the
audience, mentally and physically, actually becomes a part of the work. The resulting
output is as diverse as the individuals who participate, the dynamics between them, and
the way they choose to engage with it. Contributions to my genre: first MFA time-based
thesis installation, was a pioneer of video performance and installation art, first live
performance in the history of the Web, first Web performance and installation archives,
first telerobotic webcam sculpture and installation, first graphical user interface for urban
information on the Web.
