Artist Statement:


    This image is from a series that explores the deconstruction of the human body. The humans have been combined with mechanical parts to create beings that are a hybrid of man and machine. This particular image represents all that remains of a natural body. The body has been broken down and used for parts while the head remains locked away waiting for the time when it will also be taken and used in the creation of another being.

    In my work, I merge objects that have been captured with a digital camera with objects that have been modeled three-dimensionally in the computer. This allows me to have greater control over the image and the environment I am creating. I am able to represent my ideas without restrictions or limitations.
