    Pre-Lot Text

    We are products of this technological age, where things no longer move in a linear pattern. The linear model has changed. In making art I'm trying communicate many things simultaneously: my political concerns, taking responsibility for the art as a self-portrait, amateur history lessons, etc. I'm interested in making art that can be a mirror of the time that I'm in, art as a microcosm.
