Artist Statement I am fascinated by the ways in which mathematical principles and scientific discoveries have exposed many unseen patterns. When repetition, time and movement are coordinated, pattern emerges. These patterns then repeat at different scales, the microscopic, human and stellar. I find it intriguing how patterns can repeat themselves in different contexts, and how this repetition can evoke a sense of continuity and interconnectedness. I use repetition and layering of media in an attempt to understand these disparate worlds and the common threads between them.
