Art has been a product of three components: the mind, the heart, and past experiences. As the disappearance of the natural environment synchronizes with the disintegration of perceiving reality, that interconnectedness is now expanding to the collective consciousness, the remote empathy, and the imagination of the future that may change history. We are all the medium that art takes its place, all caught up in it, meanwhile changing it.

Thus, my works are both virtual and variable. Those digital works comprised of data exist as complete thoughts and images. Every piece has arbitrary features and static properties waiting to be informed by human interaction. I explore, collect, and join the information from the network and then redistribute this across the digital ecosystem. Being exchangeable on the virtual platform, digital works using game engines have multiple potentials: animation, virtual photography, or immersive digital theater. It is a process of playing and creating that will never be finished.
