My work addresses issues of impermanence and fragility through the use of surrogate forms. I am inspired by the notion of mortality and by the human body itself. I also explore ideas of impressions and decay as a natural consequence of existence.  As an interdisciplinary new media artist, I use video, animation, and physical computing to create digital and interactive works. The nature of new media lends itself to the use of surrogate forms within a safe environment where I possess the control to save and duplicate my work—essentially allowing me to create immortal models of mortality.
