Some of the most meaningful experiences in life are durational: parenting, romantic love, friendship, careers. The actual moments in which we become aware of their significance are few and far between. In the mean time, we seek meaning in more particular ways.

As an artist, I explore the psychological significance of entertainment practices, from television-watching to crafting to gaming, as well as seeking to make my own obsessions more meaningful by turning them into art.
From within the subcultures of gaming, crafting, and fandom, the engagement of the participants is often described in terms of addiction/obsession and religion. Participants are devotees, as well as addicts. But neither of these extremes is abnormal. Rather it is evidence of man's constant search for meaning.
