The new body of work (2013 – 2014) exists in the intersection of digital technology, product design, architecture and the body. I take my digital drawings as starting point to create sculptural constructions that exist in the liminal space of painting and sculpture. These works employ traditional methods as well as digital technology in a quest for new forms that speak of the increasing malleability of the body and our ability (and desire) through technology to see the inside of things. This work grows out of conversations with myself since 1999 (Gaswork drawings) and followed by the Oration series (2001-2005).
