Self Encompassing Void

Self Encompassing Void

I am a digital media artist, but I would describe my practice as bridging the gap between the physical and digital world. I have all my life inhabited a fascinating environment where everything around us is created in a digital world, so much so that it can be observed that the digital world has begun to bleed into the physical world. My work always has a tangible application in the physical world, but its roots always are set in digital design. Whether using digital design as an asset to be fabricated, or conceptualizing a physical process using digital design software, strengthening and exploring the relationship between the physical and digital world is fundamental to my practice. Design is always the first step to creating a meaningful experience in a work of art, it is a means by which we can explore the intrinsic purpose found in objects around us. It is a way by which we can infer meaning from something, and whether or not we are able to find this meaning in design is often dependent on how well or poorly designed it is.

Self-Encompassing Void: When looking at a mirror reflecting in on itself is to create a seemingly endless space out of something that is empty. To create such a space that is viewable from either side breaks this illusion, as something cannot extend endlessly into the same space.
