“It is accepted that as technology advances, the ways that we perceive, understand, and influence the world around us are changing. As more aspects of human experience permeate through a filter of some kind of electronic manipulation, actual experience becomes more entwined with the virtual.
Through the use of digital tools, it becomes possible to understand and dictate form purely in terms of geometric co-ordinates. This results in forms and patterns evoking the spiral geometry of the Golden Ratio and Fibonacci Series – mathematical sequences found throughout nature, from the growth of leaves and seed heads in plant life to human DNA itself.
I believe that geometric pattern and mathematics can provide interesting connections between the natural and digital worlds. In parallel, I feel that the concept of craftsmanship itself is transforming; skill in using digital media is becoming comparable to skill in manipulating molten glass or other materials.
I use the tradition, technique and language of glassblowing as a lens through which to explore the effect technological advance has on the way that we interface with objects and our environment…”
