As an artist, I am a weaver?of content, intentions, media, agendas and desires. I am interested in the invisible webs that tie people together and in the networks of systems and relationships that structure our lives as we move together in history. The web, along with interactive installations, is the place that I have found to bring these elements together in order to investigate these relationships and make other connections ? using a very personal as well as a very collective approach.

My practice employs a multidisciplinary process of inquiry and often requires collaboration, dialogue, research and observation. I attempt to identify ?patterns? and locate the forms derived from these patterns, as configurations of reality in its various dimensions?physical, psychological, political.

One of my primary objectives is to energize and influence positive societal change. I strive to create worlds where there is a ripple effect; where stories accumulate, people share, and where art and technology can be used to map out radically new understandings and innovative processes of decision making and information sharing that go beyond the superfluous and the trivial to address and effect deep societal issues. Out of these strategies, I want to create a space where all these threads of individual and collective revelations enable one to imagine a world in which all our relationships?obvious and implicit?can be illuminated, grasped and rewoven.
