Artist Statement:


    I am searching for an activity that will place maximum demands on the full complement of our creative faculties, something that will realize our potential as human beings. It is increasingly difficult for me to find such demands and realizations in object-oriented art-making, which often seems to be locked in a log-jam of self-indulgence, narrowing rather than expanding the artist’s range of activities. Process-oriented art may well point a way around this blockade, and computers offer an extremely high level of involvement in process. The computer is a tool, but a qualitatively different kind of tool than, say, a paint brush. The computer is more like a partner.
