Its not science fiction its bio fiction. The fantasy of future colonization of the new frontier is taking place not in outer space but in inner space. The terrain in and under our skin maps out the building material and the architectural blue prints for the 21st century. Vectors, the photographic project which I am presenting participates in the investigation of dermal and sub-dermal schemas or strains. It posits the question; where does the system end and I begin? Has the complexity of our web of communication and information exchange permeated our skin — our first defense against infection? Are we trapped in a labyrinth, doomed to be hypnotized watching mass data exchanges, cheep flashing lights, all the while listening to poor quality audio? Or, has our culture and its artifacts illuminated a conclusion drawn long ago that we are the system and the systems in us. How much longer can we stand by mesmerized in an electronic feedback loop enjoying the show?

The agents of infection have the most in common with communication systems. The act of transmission is invisible, it is only made apparent by its clinical symptoms: a cough, a blister, a newscast, a news conference. 

Evolving Moisture

Evolving Moisture

Evolving Moisture was recorded to allow us to see what we couldn’t see. Events are often too abrupt or too slow or too large or too small for us to witness without some form of non-self device. When the opportunity to sense events around us is expanded, our ability to give shape to what is possible grows. The shape of possibility fortunately can be expressed in innumerable contexts including our physical bodies. Predictability, all that is will change, and all that change is valuable.

In Which Nature Abhors a Vacuum

In Which Nature Abhors a Vacuum

The resonance created between real and false, public and private, normal and pathological keens the viewer's attention on how they look at disorder in themselves and others. If health truly is “life in the silence of the organs” then the disturbance of illness marks a vivid challenge to autonomy and privacy. Our community inevitably is one shaped by common disease pools.
