Most of what distinguishes human consciousness from other biological activities is our brains' capacity for abstraction. We boil perceptions down to their basic components, their object-function with regard to the subject, and lose grasp of the complexity and subtlety of experiences. The widespread reproduction of images increases this effect, as real things, perceived ad nauseam, become iterations of an abstract idea rather than the unique, actually happening experience that they are. My work reflects and distorts this relationship to information.
