Truth is Beauty, beauty is truth- that is all you know. Yet, illusion won’t free us from reality, even as the sustained narrative of tabloids becomes history and the myth of progress continues to perpetuate invisible violence. The transformation of the global landscape under the weight of industrialization is central to my work, as is the residual of consumption, the mutability of history and the material inequalities of a world reduced to a bottom line. In its inexhaustible invention of deduction and speculation, the medium of capturing moving and still images is nothing more than a chemically processed imprint causally connected to reality- bound to neither truth nor objectivity, but the subjective and universal. The story of my life is the story of the world.
