I explore duct-tape and new technologies concerning it. I subvert it by utilizing it alongside traditional mediums such as paper, vellum and Tyvek and navigating through similarities concerning computer motherboards, traffic patterns, street maps, and ancient architectural ruins. I interpret them in ways to draw the viewer into dialog, continuing explorations of methodologies and relationships. Though linearly based, these works allude to organic structures and incomplete fractals.

I suggest, that this marriage between duct-tape and these substrates is total debauchery. The play on materials, textures and colors furthers my premise of working with opposition in every way possible. This multi-layering and sometimes grafting of colors refer to different ideologies within each piece, inflating the notion of a universe where subversives become part of the fabric of what is a known truth but causing it to unravel, the unknown make the weak parts stronger.
