These images are renderings of three dimensional objects existing in virtual space. The pieces I make exist as computer generated objects, fully described, complete with accurate dimensions and precision mechanisms.

During my time as a graduate student at Tyler I have pursued the development of CAD/CAM processes for the creation of craft objects in the computer environment. I focused on designing functional objects that express both traditional and contemporary elements of form and concept. I researched the means by which virtual objects existing in computer space could be realized as tangible objects in real space through the use of a 3-axis CNC milling machine.

I believe strongly in the careful consideration concerning the appropriateness of designs, aesthetics and processes and how they should be employed in this context. What part of the "old" do we bring with us? What part of the "new" is not in our best interest to embrace? What is the role of the maker of objects in this new environment? As we discuss the merits of art objects existing in virtual space we know we have entered a new era. In this time of enormous change I look to the history of the discipline from which I come for guidance and perspective.
