Artist Statement:


    Data acquisition, fear, personal life, files, privacy, security, safety, freedom… a maze of contradictory needs and desires. We know the world better than we ever have before; our fear and unease grow steadily. The omnipresent security camera is the sign of this knowledge and fear. It represents a fundamental trade: the surrendering of individual space for protective environment. It offers the reality and illusion of safety through information. For the past few years, my work has focused on the contradictions quietly bubbling beneath the surface of the information grid.
