Artist Statement

My artwork represents a meditation on the Akashic Records, and can be considered as a kunstkammer for the antipodes of the mind. While the Internet is often cited as a contemporary metaphor for the Akasha, I see this comparison as overly simplified and linguisized. My artwork is an attempt to create a more effective visual metaphor of a tiny slice of the Akashic system, as experienced through the time and space-binding mechanisms of human awareness.
