With in the first few years of my early education, I’ve spent my life to date developing survival skills that often seem like a process of decoding the world around me. My art practice is an expression of this process of decoding. All my artistic projects start with research and begin by looking at a large data set, with the intention of creating a visual interaction that goes beyond an aesthetic representation, and allows for poetry. My projects have included topics like High-Frequency Trading (the automation of the financial system), Online dating apps (personal data), GPS coordinates, and, more recently, environmental statistics. With each project, I’ve learned new ways to reveal the embedded patterns within the systems of each topic. This has been a process of developing a language, which grows stronger with each new topic and informs the previous works.
