Artist Statement:


    Digital media is ageless, even though the equipment we use to produce it becomes obsolete more quickly each year. A dot-matrix printer is essentially useless in 2015, even though it represents a recent leap forward in technology. With Palimpsest, I created a hacked scanning device for the forensic analysis of the recently discarded tech. The resulting images reveal snippets of attempted communication from the recent past that appear ancient and mysterious.
