My painting practice is collaborative, interdisciplinary and conceptual. Through painting I create opportunities for new perceptive moments. A participant is offered a lens to see certain aspects of their world and hopefully this lens will inspire social questions which were not accessible before encountering this new perspective. While the work exists in a two dimensional form, I offer user interface through performance, public programs and video. Currently I am exploring Spectacle Island in Boston Harbor through documentation on Google earth, the paintings are spherical panoramas designed to be mapped to a sky dome in any 3D modeling software. The painting exists as a 2 dimensional object, representing the flattened 360 camera data from Google Maps API. This digital environment is then home to various fictional narratives constructed through stop motion painting animations mixed with online publicly sourced images and media. This method of sampling data and images from the public enforces the user’s growing familiarity with the interface I have constructed, as they will be able to navigate the work the same way they may encounter google earth, a video game or a YouTube video. The work entertains faults in our concept of intellectual property and aggressively highlights through surveillance and imagery the abuse we have taken through many corporate contracts in our daily life.
