My work not only takes cues from Minimalism and cartography, but also from specific programming languages; the interest being not necessarily the functionality of these languages but their aesthetics: pattern, repetition, elegance, syntax, and whitespace. How does code communicate or describe the information and labour involved? What is visible versus not visible? Like memory, each indelible layer is altered by the very act of recording; the data accumulating over time, and inevitably buried.
As someone who insists on working with my hands, I’m interested in how I might [re] iterate and/or interpret this white noise. I understand the danger of metaphor when relating these things to my work, but this is one mirrored in a series of philosophically-shaped objects, descriptors, signifiers and nonsensical language. The obsessive study of excessive and futile labour is an excavation of this perceived overlap of memory and technology.
