Contemporary culture is saturated with millions of short-lived stimuli that fight to hold our attention — every day, we are inundated with thousands of messages that threaten to take over our focus. These images and ideas are copied and collected from incredibly diverse sources. They're catalogued and recontextualized, then cast back into the fray. Perhaps because of this constant reshuffling, there's a general apathy about the origin of these information snippets: if an image or idea is only popular at this moment, delving into its history seems superfluous.
My work is an observation on this era of free circulation. I use a variety of disparate elements within my work and place them without context as to how they were created or where they came from — much like using a Google image search and finding a picture disembodied from its original source. Together I’ve formed these references into a chaotic world of brightly colored shapes and patterns engaged in a delicate balancing act. The end result is something of a visual paradox as each piece adds stress to a fragile, geometric web that's tenuously held together even though it's always on the verge of breaking apart.
