Infinite Surface is a series of prints that appropriate the visual language of digital media. On their own, digital symbols and characters are strictly functional, sterile on a deep level, and only superficially meaningful. By filtering them through my body with traditional materials and processes I reinvest them with the emotional and physical qualities they lack in their original context. My prints and paintings remove the screen, placing emojis, icons, and windows in the same space as human anatomy and momento mori where their illusory nature becomes grotesquely apparent.
The digital world is embedded in us and it affects our experience of reality. My work represents human experience in flux between singular and binary, in an effort to reintroduce the digitally-saturated mind to the fading body. Through this perspective I pose questions about power, permanence, identity, and the relationship between self and other.
