    • I collaborated with Cornell Social Scientists to investigate the concept of waste, what it means today and how it can be reduced. During this project, I became familiar with many organizations. One of these was the Electronic Warehouse in Gowanus by the Lower East Side Ecology Center, which I later joined as an artists. Their goal was to gather people from different professions to repurpose old technology. In exchange for my time, I collected many pieces, including the ones exhibited today.

    • Nam June Paik is a famous Korean American artist that displayed his art on CRT technology. I restore his work and make sure these older technologies still perform their original functions. In contrast to Nam June Paik, who used CRT television because they were cutting edge technology, I create work with CRTs because they no longer represent the cutting edge. Preserving electronic based art is a growing concern for the art community. Before I die, I want to make a proper system for people to maintain all kinds of media art, even the ones that are created with “extinct” equipment.

    • When we go down into a microscope, we see a new world where electrons and atoms exist and interconnect. When we look at our solar system from the furthest point, that same dynamic is reproduced: it looks like electrons and atoms. They exist within each other, looping from point to line and plane before going back to a point. My work is emblematic of that loop; all of the images displayed on the screen are different views of the universe.
