I make artwork with the idea that our human-constructed world and the larger natural world are converging at quickening rate, and that technologies from both realms are wrapping around each other in order to create new space and opportunity.
I am interested in bringing the viewer to an interstitial space or moment where they can feel the world anew through a lens of deep time. Sculpture has the power to fuse together notions of architecture and geology, and I use that synthesis as a tool that builds in service to the expansion of possibility.
I make things and situations that ask if phenomenology can be brought into the conversation of how innovations get realized into the world, and by so doing, correct the anthropocentric attitude that we humans are solely responsible for the technology we produce. Perhaps we have a silent partner(s)/intelligences that are collaborating with us. Intelligences that operate in a different, but close by, space. In recognition of our continuing evolution with this elusive but ever present force, I feel we need a new word to describe it, so I’ll call it Ghost-tech.
The verb form of Ghost-tech would be Ghost-teching, and that may be a more useful way to conceive of this elusive proposition.
