Artist Statement:
I am indebted to the writer Dr. Seuss for having written the children’s story Horton Hears a Who, which first gave me the idea as a child that worlds can exist though we may not perceive them. What a concept! Reality may not be what it seems. This cracked open my imagination. As a visual artist and experimental filmmaker, I am inspired by what lies at the threshold of perception. I wonder about the unseen, the impalpable, the barely conceivable. The jostling of subatomic particles, the spaces between cells, what mind is, how we understand phenomena, the shape of the universe, these are some of the things that fascinate me. Science, as a way of knowing, is never far behind my thoughts when I work.

Winter’s Veil

2007

digital animation on DVD (edition 2/10)

8 minutes, 11 seconds
(purchased in 2013)

Artist Statement:
Winter’s Veil is an experimental 3D digital animation. Beneath a curtain of snow, an imaginary microscopic world emerges and transforms into other entities. It was originally produced as a site-specific art installation with the video projected onto a mirror frame to create a through-the-looking-glass experience of alternate reality.
