"Cave"

I made "Cave" in late 2007. It consists of a self portrait video and found images and sounds.

A lot of my work deals with ideas of the "internal landscape": where it begins and ends and where it overlaps with "reality". Most of what I produce is not fully visualized beforehand. What I see when I close my eyes is still very elusive and probably fuels much of my drive to continue making things. A lot of artists talk about this type of channeling of information versus seeing a completed product and then fabricating it. Even when I visualize a complete image it tends to want to be woven into something else. It is a third participant in that way, straddling the area between what I think about and what becomes concrete.
