I make art to understand the world. I’m a science fiction fucking cyberwarlock, bootstrapped by unyielding curiosity as I churn the inchoate pulp gurgling through our cultural metabolism into digitally active, physical artifacts—a process that can never fully present the glimpsed unknowns filling my mutant brain, nor reveal for me their meaning. What is communication? Really, what the fuck is it? This question is a concept. It’s the core of everything I do.
