Iterative works inspired about Paul Virilio's text "Open Sky."

I'm thinking about the life span of a piece, a sculpture or installation that is used in a performance and video documentation that leaves the residue of an object that is then another piece.

I have been interested in exploring the intersection between the material and the nonmaterial, the physical and the virtual, real-time and virtual-time, and the actual and the technological. By capturing the collapse of physical space through time, I highlight that moment of intersection. I am using the metaphor of the collapsing of physical space to represent the flattening of our perception of our environment due to our increasingly immediate digital world.
