Artist’s statement

This work examines the influence of technology on the urban environment, stemming from my fascination with technology and how computers have shaped our world. I have translated this using computer software that has provided me with new ways to manipulate and generate artworks. The inclusion of computer hardware represents the postmodern world; my artworks reflect an ever-shifting urban landscape dominated by computers and technology – a reminder of what our world has become.
