ARTIST STATEMENT

I’m interested in digital decoration and ornamentation in relationship to CyberFeminism and virtual interior design. I design animated wallpaper that is ambient, and subversive. The wall, screen, and monitor are all habitats for my work. When projected and mapped onto a wall, the wallpaper alters space and the background becomes the subject. I’m influenced by 20th Century historic cultural trends, period film sets, and Internet sub genres like Sea Punk. Coloration and pattern design are used to talk about the spectrum of femininity. Fantasy and architecture details reflect  a surrealist nature in spaces where hauntings are visible.
