I am a digital artist who creates images: still, moving and interactive. I enjoy it and I want my audience to as well - whether that be through the humor, an appealing aesthetic or just a sense of wonderment.
The concept that most appeals to me as an artist is cyberspace. I create ‘virtual’ art that lives, breathes and develops on hard drives and cyberspace through a code of ones and zeroes. When it translates to the real world, through print for example, the result is just a snapshot in time. It contains little information on how it was created; an image therefore that is completely open to interpretation just as is the wonderful medium of cyber space itself.
However, to the often imagined cold, inhuman, virtual world of cyberspace I also want to add the power and warmth of very human experiences and emotions: a night out with friends, lost in visuals, atmosphere, music or time and effort spent immersed in a seemingly all too real game world that doesn’t actually exist.
To summarize? Escapism – for me as an artist and for my audience. Success being measured by every moment either of us escapes from the mundane.
