The natural world has inspired me to explore issues of GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) with their creation of Chimera-like new life forms and the provocative idea of “Intelligent Design” with it’s slant on evolution being designed by a creator. I use these features of modifying and design to create new imagery. Along with my interest in nature, I find the digital world of computer technology compelling and am drawn to the juxtaposition of its reality with the natural world.
This work sometimes entails site specific photography where I stage arrangements of natural organisms with either man-made or other natural elements. I take digital photographs of these ephemeral assemblages, then using my computer I create my hybrid forms.
