About the Art

My work is informed by my lifelong love of science fiction, fantasy, and the surreal, and straddles the boundaries between abstract and concrete, dreaming and waking, intuitive and rational, familiar and strange.

Over the last few years, I've developed custom software to create algorithmically generated images, which I call scriptographs, by converting photographic data into typographic symbols. These symbols can then be arranged freely, geometrically, or in strict accordance with the original photograph. Each image is generated by its own computer program, using routines from the common library.


About the Artist

I grew up in a peripatetic military family, and lived in Okinawa, England, and Germany, as well as many locations in the United States, before making my home in the San Francisco Bay area. I've been making photographs, and computer-based visual art and music, for over thirty years. In my parallel career as a musician, I have performed and recorded with Pledge Drive, Shalmaneser, Slaw, and under my own name, and am currently composing and playing bass guitar with Reconnaissance Fly.
