1975-present: Cybernetics, Chaos, and Complexity
I make art out of curiosity. What happens when seemingly unrelated images are layered? When does an imaging process begin to devolve into chaos? How does visual information become knowledge? As the visual world becomes increasingly complex more questions emerge.
My work lies at the intersections of visual art and digital technology. My formal training was in printmaking. For the last forty five years I have continued to combine traditional print mediums with digital means of production. Today my etching and lithography presses have been replaced by a large format digital archival pigment printer. My primary drawing tools are 3D animation and game development programs. These softwares allow me to create images by simulating chaos and also use artificial intelligence as a drawing tool.
