About

For most recent works from "High Performance Gear" please refer to the bitforms gallery website (I haven't had the time to update the website).

My practice is focused on the shift from Modernism to a Networked Society. Everything that can — becomes digital. Everything that can be networked — connects. This happens by a natural desire.

The network mobilizes a power shift. At the same time it reminds us that we're made by this planet and are connected to one another, not altruistically, but at the ground level, literally.

Narrative and languages are the central device to synthesize different media.

Except for a few countries that start on the 1/2 or 3/4, everyone else on this planet agreed that an hour begins and end at the same time. Thus standard time is possibly the first global agreement.

Traveler's Journal is a collection of net art works that tell of a traveler who searches for a lost treasure in a parallel world called Sunset/Sunrise. The solitary quest renders an internal, vast landscape. This subjective cosmology of a voice striped of identity properties is the source for many of my works. More >
