In a broader context, my work explores the line between the biological and mechanical, using popular, iconographic references. The idea of a distinction between the biological and the industrial, or the human and the digital, and the blurring of that distinction, is explored both as subject matter in the work and also in the production. While the aesthetic of the work is that of mass production and the absence of the hand, the work, itself, is clearly a synthesis of ideas and processes that would not typically originate in the consumer environment, resulting in a displaced hybrid.
In the process of being seduced and repulsed, of distinguishing the biological from the digital, there exists an environment for dialogue. In this environment, the dialogue is neither either/or, but a complex system of nuanced relationships that are full of both potential and hope, and significant moral and ethical questions.
