In keeping with a conceptual practice I continue to question and analyse the idea of art. My work concerns the use of computer technology to augment our thinking and elucidate deeper understandings of issues and positions within the art field. Participation is paramount here and much of my work is interactive where the visitor’s actions and choices contribute to the delivery of a piece’s content. Although there is a façade of entertainment in that the pieces are quite playful and engaging, the intent is to use new technology to present and help elucidate more complex ideas about what art is.
