Statement
What I am regularly impressed by is the staggering amount of systems and subsystems that we have created and the limitless variation that we develop in similar types of objects. It strikes me sometimes that our impulse and desire to create is somehow an attempt to come to a better understanding of our creator. That somehow through ceaseless invention and innovation (i.e. creation) we will eventually attain our day of rest.

The Dystopia Series currently consists of six episodes (titled Oil Tanks, Suburbia, Containers, Parking Lots, Railroads, and Farmlands) that are constructed by editing and animating satellite imagery. Together, these videos create a unique view of altered landscapes focused on one element. By reducing a landscape to a core element, I am able to document the variation in form and design of our social and economic infrastructure while creating a more abstracted view of these manufactured landmarks. The artist recommends wearing ear plugs when viewing.
