Artist Statement

My art is concerned with the commonplace lives of ordinary people. I'm fascinated by the fact that despite all of its travails humankind battles on for survival, struggles to maintain its basic dignity, ever hopeful, and often humorous. I've always been partial to works that express a spirit of optimism.

My CD-ROM is more of a family history than a work of art. It is an audio-visual document. Every family produces its own "Private Album". Mine is just an example of the most ordinary kind of reality.

My CD-ROM is interactive, it is not a work made for the imposing walls of an art gallery. It's in an accessible format that anyone can use. Through it I extend an invitation to you to experience it in the whimsical manner in which I have produced it. Perhaps in the future all of our memories will speak to each other in this way, gradually forming an opaque mass, at once both chaotic and inclusive.
