An updated Artist Statement

At its heart, my artistic practice is about experiencing science, in the form of astronomy and cosmology, though various aesthetic processes and forms. Many of the operating principles, such as sensitivity to the process of experimentation and the scientific method, very much align with my artistic process. Astronomy is a practice of making observations and interpreting or translating what is seen into numerical or visual forms while cosmology is the study and exploration of the larger universe and its evolution. The distinction that sets these disciplines apart from art is that the end goal of art is primarily aesthetic. My working method takes on the form of experimental processes found in both astronomy and cosmology and the end results often recreate an experience of information extracted from those disciplines. Although experiencing science is a central working principle for me, the ever-present goal is to invigorate that same sense of wonder associated with looking at the night sky and imagining what possibilities it holds.
