Abstract/Artist's Statement

My aim is to describe how the technical image, which is at the very core of our culture today, is in fact a technologically aided method of thinking (or imagining) which has outstripped our powers to control it and as a result come to absolutely dominate our lives. Further, through this domination, the technical image has created a type of visual culture that has ensnared us silently. Not only are we, in essence, “non-existing” if we refuse to participate in this global image network but the network and computational visual culture has evolved and become complex to the point we are often times no longer able to create meaning within it at all.Rather that meaning is created on a blistering scale by algorithms which although “dumb” in some sense, are actually able to create things which begin to confuse us in regards to aesthetic value.
