artist statement

These pieces are from a body of work entitled: 'Emergent Codes'. This work is inspired by some of the recent technological and scientific innovations including cellular automata, fractal geometry, complex systems, chaos theory, connectionism, turing waves and remote sensing. These exciting discoveries are creating remarkable images of our world and the processes that create it never before seen. The catalyst for these broad changes in our understanding is the introduction and use of the digital computer with its ability to crunch complex calculations that were never before possible.My aim is to produce art objects. So, as an artist I am communicating my own personal vocabulary inspired by the artifacts of science. It thus seems appropriate to use the computer as an art tool to discuss ideas that have come into being as a result of the computer.
