Looking Out II (installation view), 2004
Live video installation
In mapmaking, the operation of sighting on distant points to locate one’s own position
is called resection. My work springs from an effort to fix myself within the shifting complexity of the modern landscape by either focusing on existing landmarks or creating my own. Each new artwork provides an additional bearing on the map I am constructing of my place in the world. Recent projects use installation, video, and digital media to explore how specific places and events have an impact on both artist and viewer. I am especially interested in how these experiences are mediated by pre-existing mental constructs like maps and models, and in the potential for technology to radically alter the perceptual relationship between individuals and their environment.
