The glow of the screen is alluring, yet it displaces me from reality. Through the artwork I make with electronics, I confront the disconnect between the perpetual advancement of technology and the erosion of the natural perceptual awareness of our immediate environment. I explore my love/hate relationship with computers, as I contend with a mediated existence. In the video highway, a visualization of the GPS grid swoops past the viewer as they voyage down the freeway, fully immersed in a simulation that signifies the real environment. This work comments on the virtualization of the American landscape; the traveller now experiences the road through an electronic lens.
