My individual work as an artist has developed within the structure of a visual diary - a journal, perhaps a journey. "Diary of Images", the name I have given to the body of my work, is an on-going process, a record of events, an exposé of cultural issues, a receptacle of personal and collective memories. From photo-silkscreen to video, from physical to digital, the body of my work in the last 30 years can be described as an open hybrid book. At present, I have added olfactory art as a new medium and its capacity to resurface emotions and individual/collective memories.
My personal practice is currently the subject of my PhD research; as a body of work it explores and creates opportunities for dialogue about identity-actualization of the subjective self, of concepts of an embodied or corporeal self, and of human-being-ness in a techno-cultural shared space; using traditional and experimental media the work explores the increasing intimacy between biological and technological systems, and the necessary shifts in thinking, policy and lifestyles inherent in such a relationship.

In my trans-disciplinary Postdoctoral research I am brokering new art/science collaborations whilst continuing my explorations into innovative art/science practices. My artworks are grounded in the interconnectedness between the biomedical sciences and twenty first century perceptions of the “self”. They are structured to facilitate individual viewer immersion and completion through participation - either in real-time or virtually. I re-position installation viewers as active participants rather than passive observers of pre-existing systems. I focus on reinterpreting the research data from my scientific experiments and recontextualising it in interactive artworks, using a range of media.
i work mostly with interactive art and video. also i edit online journal about new media and new music (www.hz-journal.org) and curate video and net art to widen general interest in those areas. one of my video works is archived on DVD compilation from Aspect Personas & Personalities, Vol 7.
I am interested in work that involves politics, gender and ethnic stereotypes, privilege, power, and science fiction/fantasy. I have also worked in several nonprofit art organizations and am very interested in visual and media literacy and education.
I am interested in the social and philosophical implications that exist when one realizes that ‘seeing is not believing', since it is within the limits of our perceptual framework that we interpret and act within the world. My work focuses on the construction of realities through our perceptual faculties, with the conceptual basis of the work determining the method and material used in its expression. This has included the use of interactive digital electronics as well as low-tech means in exploring themes as varied as abstract narrative, boundaries relating to physical and intangible properties, issues of trespass, and the mating behavior of hermaphroditic flatworms.
I am currently a BFA student at CSU, Chico with an option in Electronic Art and an emphasis in Multimedia. I have worked as a graphic design intern on campus for over two years now and am currently beginning my fifth year in school. I've been involved with many things throughout my college career, including studying abroad for a semester in Spain, being an active member on the waterski team, and various other clubs and organizations available on campus. I love art and am currently developing my personal theme and artist statement for my graduating exhibition I'll be having this spring. I am also developing my own personal website at the moment and will be uploading it here when it's completed and live.
