The space-time compressions of our digital age are changing our sense of physical reality. The virtual reality of cyber space compounds our sense of an inability to reach or grasp ‘true’ reality. Within our technological age, the virtual informs our physical condition and environment and as such becomes materiality.
My work is informed by technologies, which are synonymous with daily life, in particular the way technology, including Google maps, Google sky maps, text messaging and social media networks, are not only inseparable from the experience we have of the world but that the technology itself becomes the experience of reality.
The idea of perception, place, space and time, and how these are undergoing a radical shift in our thinking, is central to my work.
I aim to reflect these technologies back to the viewer and ask; what is it to experience this world, this place, this now?
