The works represented in the exhibition are tapestries or collages of scientific, biological, and geometric data found and collected from various websites and online databases. I refer to my working method as "digital archeology." I utilize simple design software techniques to translate visual images and data representations into revisions of their original content. The results are fragments of re-constructed digital translations into related but distorted interpretations of the original digitally conceived source. My primary interest lies in how all data is filtered, represented, and augmented throughout the entirety of our current technological existence. Utilizing faceted and fragmented forms, acrylics, and 3d printed plastics is the basis for exploring these relationships. Using color, the digital residue of specific CNC processes, and how software code manipulates our reality into a cacophony of visual data. These rendered objects represent a coded residue of the experience between humans, computers, and machines to create complex and fractured structures that coalesce into experiences that mimic our current reality.
