I work in sound-art, poetry, painting, printing, assemblage, mechanism, book art, performance on and on and on. I've had a lifetime of practice. I don't specialize. and I'm not proficient in any single discipline, I lack pedigree and MFA, I know nobody important and I don't have a facebook account, instagram, pinterest, or twitter.....
My primary area of concern, my primary theme and area of exploration, has been that of the philosophical implications of copying, duplication, and reduplication. I owe a lot to the work of Alvin and Mary Lucier and have used their methods of reduplication towards that end. Images, audio, video are all subjected to the routine of copying and recopying until arrival at a point where the work has disappeared under its own degeneration. This has lead me to some unconventional conclusions regarding existence, ontology, culture and physics. That being: everything is a copy. Everything is an accident.
Featured on this site are images of various work engaged in this pursuit. There are duplication/pantograph machines that work to replicate a static image. For audio and visual I would contact me for samples or visit my wordpress site.
