Artist Statement

For someone living in a time of connectivity and one-click shopping -- where it can begin to seem like water simply comes from the tap, electricity from an outlet, and wifi from a router -- it can be all too easy to forget about the physical infrastructure that allows such an existence. Underlying the average day is an unseen dimension that includes undersea cables, fulfillment centers, cargo ships, substations, and more. My collections of infrastructural sites are meant as reminders of that dimension.
