I think of art as a developing, interdisciplinary practice. I have made object portraits, soundscapes, music and art videos, paintings that look like drawings, digital photographs that look like paintings and aluminum reliefs that look like collage. Recently, my colleagues at The Center for Arts Education and I tried our hands at reinventing the Webinar (link added to this site).
Whatever my original intentions, the unconscious inevitably shapes my work in unpredictable ways. As a whole, I hope that what I make is received as being more about the experience of being alive than it is about a particular theory or style. If I had to choose one word to define my taste, it would be "economy." I don't think art should say more than it has to.
