I am engaged in the excavation, re-imagination, revisioning, and manipulation of contemporary culture and networked popular culture. My imagery presents a steady stream of pop data that has been abjectly obscured in some way, the content and imagery become hyperlinked and jumbled leaving viewers questioning media realities and ones perceptive lens.
