My medium is the .jpg, since all I make is finally compressed into this format, before it is distributed to a wider audience than I will ever physically reach. My artwork incorporates elements of found objects, photography and collage. I like to think of my collage work as digital permutations; rearrangements of objects, textures and shapes I've created or found.
My fields of research include the virtual: web surfing, new age capitalism and healthy lifestyle propaganda, as well as natural elements: clouds, bacteria, moss, fungi, water, rocks and crystals. I find inspiration in the mundane: everyday boredom and Donald Duck comics, as well as the mysterious: meditation and the hypnagogic sleep phase.
