I believe it is a transformative time in contemporary culture when glowing screens constantly bombard us. For me, these screens function similarly to a window. This is especially noticeable while one surfs the Internet, a virtual window to the world. In many ways my life has been one of filtering through interfaces of windows from actual to virtual, all of which act like screens situated in-between two spaces. Thus, windows metaphorically and literally act as a space located between two defined worlds. The window’s potency is the capacity to reveal or block one space from another at the same time, be it the divine and the worldly, the inside and outside, and/or the fictional and nonfictional. The goal of my work is to explore and unlock this window between spaces, while simultaneously investigating ideas of culture.
