Social Studies, 2005–2006

The pieces in this series are idiosyncratic portraits of human dynamics. Through images inspired by the body, electronics, comics, model kits, science, architecture, and other related systems, I am exploring the synaptic patterns negotiated in everyday interactions. Recorded, read, utilized, stored, amplified and disseminated, these traced pathways and points of interchange are subject to the complexities of flow and interruption over time. Constructed digitally, the act of composing these collected moments is experienced as a form of mapping. With this work, I am continuing to create a visual language for reflecting on the humor and conflict within situations.
