As an artist rooted in drawing, performance, sculpture and other means of storytelling, I am left wondering how one can visually and/or physically mark society, culture, politics, history, within our ever shifting digital, global environment. Our marks are determined by the pacing of physical selves in the world, defined by these interactions. Representation is a fundamental component of observation. What we see in both physical and digital spaces determines our production, and in turn our production mirrors back to us our place. The pace created through the act of making, and the act of viewing offer an alternative political and physical entry point for experience.
