My painting practice is collaborative, interdisciplinary, and conceptual. Painting allows me to offer new perspectives on the digitization of images and information as well as the changing role of relationships and physical presence in contemporary society. While the main body of work exists in a two dimensional form, I offer user interface through performance, public programs and video. This body of work allows participants a different lens to see the(ir) world, to inspire social questions which were not accessible before encountering this new perspective. 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. The digital environment is 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.
