Describe your art practice
My practice is a process, a constant experiment, exploring photography, film, video, and vision itself, as medium and subject. I am particularly interested in how dominant technologies and ideologies influence what is seen, what is captured, and what is saved over time. In what myriad of ways, both consciously and unconsciously, do we choose to mediate what we see? And what does this say about the world we live in? In a culture of constant capture and distribution, technology always changes, but does it evolve? I revive and analyze imagemaking processes and philosophies to address such present day conditions.

Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
I don't believe my images would look different or be crafted differently. However, if I were not is debt I might be able to afford different materials for printing, framing, and presentation.
