I have been making information based art for the last 15 years.
I became engaged with the medium after completing my undergraduate in Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins while minoring in computer science. Post graduation in 1996, I launched clique.org which was recognized by early net artists for its experimental work with narrative, text, image and sound.
Since my first Apple ][e, code has been a method of exploration for interactive media, information design, and graphic language. Subjects have included queer politics, WTC, financial data, visualization, and physicalized narrative. In May 2010, I completed my MFA from UCLA D|MA where my graduate work concentrated on automated data-driven spaces for performance.
I am an information designer and media artist. My work connects detritus and the ephemeral, as represented by the mundane object and information systems. I write software and drive physical environments with the Processing framework and other creative coding platforms.
Juxtaposition, collage, cut-up, and conflation are methods that I use to construct intersection points and map meaning. Intersecting seemingly disparate spectrums creates expressive possibility that can be mechanized for iterative representational effect. The aesthetic pursuit is ex-formational experiences (as defined by Kenya Hara and demonstrated by Felix Gonzalez-Torres) that teeter towards the sublime even as they circumscribe their own linguistic boundaries.
