Artist Statement

Unlike many artists who have a design in their mind’s eye for how a work should be executed, most of the time I do not. Instead, I believe in establishing a system to create through various tactics (rules, instructions, forms, concepts, etc) and then in following the work through to its possible permutations. I am interested in creating objects of aesthetic beauty, but I am more concerned with the decisions made to create the object — not simply the end result.

This work was produced by a 6’ by 6’ CNC plotter machine – a drawing robot – I constructed expressly to create work on its own. I have been running several large-scale drawings based on some various input algorithms, 3D IR scans from life, and a few other chance decision algorithms I wrote. Currently the work being produced explores the ecologies of lines produced in collaboration with the computer and the hardware machine.
