Artist's Statement

I make hacker art. Not breaking into networks, but dis-assembling hardware and composing it into sculptural collage. I combine beautiful abstract shapes made of metal, plastic, copper, silicon, ceramic, rubber ... with imagery resulting  in new ways of seeing and thinking about our relationship to technology. My work speaks to the ubicuty of technology and the speed with which it becomes obsolete. I want to bring attention to questions: what happens to all the outdated technology that is thrown away?  Why don’t we have a recycling infrastructure in place? Why can't sustainability be good enough?
