A lot of my work represents this relationship between the universe, the cosmos that we live and exist in and then really laying it down to technology. In the past, we looked to the stars to navigate this planet, but now we look to the microchip to do that. I like to position humans in between that whole thing, that yes we are still looking to the stars but we are also very much looking to an inner space and the microchip and the digital world within.

Being sober made me realize that I have so much to do in this lifetime and I just can’t be sidetracked by things that will deviate that. It has been crazy, but a lot of work has come out of it, the idea of light and darkness has become very important to me — now more than ever as the world unfolds in all these horrific and beautiful ways.

From 2000 to 2011 I didn’t make any artwork at all. When I got sober, I realized I had wasted all this time and thought to myself that I have to do something with my life. Using my work is a way to reference all of that, using contrasts and lighting to showcase our hope and expectations of the future, against the nostalgia and the regret of the past. I have become really committed to the themes of time and space, and how we view the human experience.

Quotes are from an extensive recorded interview with Elena Parise for an article in MiND Magazine, an Italian publication focused on global art, culture, and aesthetics — see more here. From June 13-15 I will show new light-based work, present a lecture, and collaborate with MiND for a three-day summit alongside creative directors from Nike, Nordstrom, Patagonia, and MG2.
