Every act is an act of creation and destruction. Situated within a series of events that wire our perceptions of reality, moments of collision create slippage in expectation, causing breaks in the circuit. Through observation of experience, we can comprehend, accept, and alter our truths, freeing the self from the self. There is no separation between art and life. One must go beyond the refinement of the object, surface, form and color, in order to reveal the intangible. By eliminating the materialism in art, I criticize the essential element of the idea, experience, and information within a work. I set up parameters to experiment within, allowing for new possibilities and progress in thought, documenting life mediated through technology. Maintaining primal instinct, authenticity, spontaneity, absurdity, and exploration are key to the process. This becomes an obsessive act of anxiety and endurance, pushing myself beyond beyond.
