My practice addresses the cultural effects that technology has on society. My current interest is in the status of craft objects in an age of electronic consumerist culture. I identify crossovers between computer graphics, and craft techniques, and explore these by making tangible art objects.

Project Information:
My latest projects suggest an emotive, quirky, humorous aspect of functional computer graphics and of electronic devices by drawing parallels between their form and function and the techniques and meanings embraced in traditional needle crafts.

I concern myself with the visual appeal of machines and electronics. I am interested in how they are considered as objects of desire, in terms of their fabrication, capabilities, and the status they give the individuals that own them.

The catalogue section of ems.endfile.com has visual and written reference to my Individual projects.

ARTIST(S): S/N Coalition

S/N Coalition is an electronic art group, which works extensively with video, sound, animation, photography and locative media. Their exhibitions often include
performative elements and mediated footage, pushing both experimental and conceptual ideas around media. S/N members include Jennida Chase and Hassan Pitts who have been creating collaborative work together since 2008.

Project Information:
The Handy-Video remix collection is a new media project in which S/N Coalition remix the urban landscape of Berlin. The remixes are video/sound-hybrids, which visually feature street art and sonically feature various neighborhoods, transportation systems and markets. Over 150 remixes were installed back in to the cityscape via QR-Codes. The codes are accessible via internet enabled CCD devices (such as cell phones and mp3 players).
