bsod (I), 2012, translucent hand-built porcelain with embedded LEDs and wire, wall-mounted, 26x12 inches  

The paper-thin porcelain is illuminated by the LEDS which are imbedded into the material, making it its own circuit board. These pieces are about the new color of mortality(blue) in relation to the blue screen . It also is meant to reflect life in an electric grid- evoking maps, scrolls and/or land formations.

i (II), 2012-2014, translucent hand-built porcelain, micro-controlled LEDs, found wire, wall-mounted installation dimensions variable

This piece was built partially from new units and partially a re-working of an earlier work, iv, and installed at ArtComplex in a former dentist office. In both works, the porcelain units are all in in iPad/tablet and iphone/smartphone shapes, illuminated from behind with micro-controlled LEDs. Each unit was hand built using a symbolic process: starting as a thin slab which was laid out and then manipulated and "pushed" as one would push "buttons" on a screen until the material began to warp and fall apart. The units are interconnected in organic clusters and synaptic formations with visceral wires. The LEDs randomly go through subtle color shifts so that the units seem to be engaged in some sort of quiet, dysfunctional or failing communication.
