Artist Note:
My artwork is digital collage, or glitch aesthetic, or … something. My use of the word “collage” is as unglued from traditional or modern use as would its substitution by “glitch.” I understand “glitch” more as a fragmentary intrusion of opposing paradigms: digital into analog, analog into digital, your chocolate into my peanut butter.

Through the use of collage or glitch, I explore the relationship of our cultural subconscious artifacts. Injections of concrete and found poetry suggest meaning and intentionality through words and phrases that breach the liminal surface like unexpected whales.
