My process is similar to computer hacking. I alter and modify the software and hardware of conventional photography in order to reprogram the medium with new directives. A mixed media synthesis utilizing elements of paintings, illustrations, and sculpture.
Photography has a history of being isolated and undervalued from other mediums in the canon of art history, my aim is continue to bridge this hierarchical gap by forming a symbiotic relationship with traditional mediums.
Though the technology of photography still continues to exponentially grow from its practical birth year of 1839, its formulations and how it physically exists within gallery spaces hasn’t experienced the same level of evolution.
Morphing and propelling the medium to a point where you question what is even considered a photograph anymore is my objective.
