“These fictional worlds act as a microcosm and translation of the world around me. My work illustrates relationships between communities, individuals, technologies and environments. Within these relationships I explore the complications formed as multiple facets of an ecosystem interact with each other. These complications act as metaphors for contemporary American society and life in the Internet age. Biology, cinema, literature, video games, history, and social media inspire these relationships.”
