"My works are abstractions based on information perception. Digital processes inform my work. Dithering is a process through which an algorithm is introduced to fill in gaps between bits of information in order to create a seamless image. It may be considered analogous to the human process of re-imagining the bits of information that go into making our reality. It is this human re-imaging where mystery resides. Day to day we live in degrees of the liminal, dithering into the content of our experience. It is a metaphysical process, the process through which we undertake what makes us most human, construct, inscribe, imagine - meaning. Through video, painting, text and sound … my work is an investigation into this human process."
