Artist Statement:


    Digital Bear was created in response to my experience of describing bowhunting for bear in Arctic Alaska to non-hunting friends in New York City by email, complete with digital images. I was uncomfortable with the way the powerful, primal, and organic richness of my experiences was sanitized by digitalization; how hygienic, safe, and downright banal it became via email. This led to creating several pieces that combine the primal and electronic worlds.
