Artist Statement

My work explores the intricate and intimate relationship between human and machine. I use interactive computer music performance systems, multimedia installation, and hacked analog electronics as creative tools to extract the intrinsic turbulence within these relationships. My goal is to use this turbulence as a stimulus for idiosyncratic improvisational interactions and visceral aesthetic experiences.
