These pieces are an exploration of biology as an interface between the physical world and the mind. I am interested in the seemingly deterministic, mathematical nature of the material and seemingly nondeterministic nature of the mind. As humanity explores new technologies that let us bypass our biological interfaces these often assumed natures will become challenged and explored in new ways. Mathematics will certainly continue to be the key to unlocking the material and it is reasonable to suspect that it will likely be the key to what is oft regarded as the metaphysical as well.

This project began with an exploration of a generative art program. I was fortunate to be able to work directly with the developer to refine my process. The work begins with a algorithmic, generative, digital process. This is followed by a mechanical process of production and a manual and chemical finishing process. The initial stages of creation are entirely mathematic while the finishing is very humanist in approach. This duality is representative of the human experience of the material world. The material world is entirely mathematic in nature while humans often seem to be free agents generating realities of their own through their choices.
