Staring at the Sky and the Screen





Dreaming of Other Celestial Bodies
Wondering What They're Looking at
Breaking Branches and Bending Grids
Measuring Half-lives on the Horizon

Artist's Statement




OS X Yosemite Desktop Smeared with Oil, Duratrans lightbox, 2015.

I upgraded my operating system again,
and a landscape was staring back at me.
I thought I’d try to make it even more beautiful.
So I smeared the screen with olive oil,
And I took a picture of what I saw.
