I am an artist, writer and researcher. My career began in the mid 1970's as a fine art post-graduate at the
MIT Visible Language Workshop (VLW). The VLW was one of seven divisions that would in the early 80's
evolve into the prestigious Media Lab. My experience at MIT was very rich in terms of the opportunity to
engage with leading thinkers and practioners in engineering and science. It also afforded an opportunity
to work directly with hybrid artists from diverse backgrounds who shared an interest in computing
technology. My tenure at MIT also coincided with that unique moment in the history of computing when
experimental investigations ushered forth a new generation of visualization tools and interactive
The Analogous Landscape project merges adventure sports, art, and information technology. The centerpiece of the
project is the climbing of ten high attitude volcanoes around the Pacific Rim-Ring of Fire. An evolving media
installation is associated with the expeditions that integrates sculpture, data visualization and environmental
mapping. It is my intention to examine the changing conception of landscape as mediated by information
technology. The Analogous Landscape project presents an experience of land as defined by human interaction with
databases, networks and interfaces. This is a work in progress.
