Working primarily with photography, I create digitally collaged photographic and video works that explore the impact of desire, simulation, and perception on our contemporary landscapes. Culling through thousands of individual photographs and videos I make of architecture and landscaping, I digitally assemble these sources to create my work. Some of the images have veracity, but more often, they suggest a visual hyperbole – an embellished scene circulating around a small object or detail. I am continually fascinated with photography's ability to be both evidence of existence - creating an image with seeming veracity - and simultaneously, a system to mediate and construct reality. I use photography as a tool to observe and then digitally combine my photographs to build spaces that do not exist, allowing the creation of images that, through metaphor and illusion, reveal both the desire and simulacrum present around us and within photography itself.
