Abstract/Artist's Statement

The following reflects my personal beliefs, and does not prescribe them to you

1. Human and technological evolution coincide in a reciprocal cycle of creation

2. In its construction, technology reflects humans

3. In their construction, humans reflect technology

4. Both function in a constant exchange between material and immaterial realms

5. Technological objects generate virtual spaces

a. Virtual space: artificially constructed immaterial space that contains products of technological engagement

b. These spaces exist within both the individual and the external virtual realm

6. Human bodies generate spiritual spaces

a. Spiritual space: organically constructed immaterial space that contains products of spiritual engagement

b. These spaces exist within both the individual and the external spiritual realm

7. The current evolutionary trajectory points towards a merging of these technological objects and human bodies

8.The entanglement is already visible

9. As technological objects and human bodies merge, virtual and spiritual space also merge

10. The two immaterial realms coalesce into a larger whole

a. Larger whole: a combination of the expansiveness of the human spirit and its intrinsic entanglement with technology

11. This synergy informs the everyday experience:

a. Emotional

b. Sensory

c. Inter-personal

d. Utilitarian

e. Creative

12. Technology reinforces humanity, making humans more human, in an eternal circuit of becoming

a. Eternal circuit of becoming: human and technological evolution coincide in a reciprocal cycle of creation

13. This is Virtual Spirit
