Art is a powerful tool for researching and exploring the human experience in ways that transcend established pathways of thought and communication. I enjoy art that uses its visual potential to encourage creative thought about ideas and issues.

In my own work, I explore the intersection of biology and technology using creative visual fictions. My recent work, Alternative Alternative Energy, looks at the future of the world energy economy and proposes such novel solutions as the Moth Generator and Energy Ice Worm Fuel. In a previous project, I examined the technology of genetically modified foods from the perspective of a near future invention the Vegetable Human Hybrids. In a quest for a more global perspective, I recently spent a year in China and traveled extensively throughout the country in search of new and old energy technologies.
