Legacy

Excerpts from 1990 artist statement:

I am fascinated by the ways in which art making is able to simulate a reality that can be manipulated to explore underlying cultural assumptions. I have been particularly interested in investigating how cultural codes are mediated through electronic technology and manifest themselves in our attitudes and behaviour. Have we become a culture whose information and ideas are given forms solely by electronic images? Have we created a new form of representation that irreversibly impacts upon our definitions of reality and identity?

Since a home is the primary location in which this information impacts upon us, I constructed the installation as a home setting and altered the physical objects normally associated with this environment. In this space, images and sounds repeat and overlap creating a visual and electronic bombardment that mirrors the insidious bombardment of our current technological value system."
