Part critique, part fascination, the art I create examines the infiltration of technology into every facet of our lives, from family and food to politics and war. Nightmarish industrial creations are set against images of grand mechanical constructions, an off-kilter vision of technology. In my visual vocabulary, the contemporary world of nanotechnology and genetic modification is retrofitted with analog mechanical parts. The Captains of Industry are sadistic gods.
Exploring this automated world through animation, printmaking, and collage, I create narratives and relationships between mechanical humanoids and animals. Through these tales of love, violence, and circuit boards, I alert the viewer to the inevitable robot invasion, and prepare them to resist.
