With the baseline notion that a photography no longer speaks more than a thousand words; that instead it has begun negating language, dismantling dialogue and sabotaging communication, I use collage methods to fragment my subject material. By reducing images to textures, lines, colors, and shapes, I pick the spectacle of our everyday apart and ask the viewer to consider the macrotruths of the pieces, before the truthiness of the whole. It's not a political gesture, still, it's a definite expression of anti-conservatism. Pick apart ond study the pieces. Re-assemble into something new. A strategy built on the fruits of failure.  And oscillating back and forth between figurations and abstractions, it is not so much about what is represents, but rather how it has come to be represented. The cut is the work. As for my music: sampling, granular synthesis, randomness algorithms, and improvisation are means of fragmenting and collaging sound into music pieces that support the same basic idea.
