My work investigates the notion of authenticity in the digital age. It questions the existing constructs of a consumer-driven society. In doing so, it attempts to address the complexities of those concepts and the resulting values and assumptions. Through the use of still and moving images, sound and text, I examine, manipulate, distort, and redact the cues that convey authenticity—what is genuine, real, true, or of value.
I share a one-acre studio and farm house (Pulp & Pixel Farm) with my wife Anita Garza, a book and paper artist. I am assistant professor of new media at Indiana University Kokomo. More work can be seen and heard on my website. Thanks for looking at my work.
