I am a visual artist and an educator, based in Seattle. Here are some samples of the work I do:

accelerator cycle, 2007

This is a collection of graduate work exploring the exciting ideas in theoretical physics at the time. The concept was to create particle accelerators to witness particle collisions through a process of image translations across media and space.

When the bicycle crank is turned, the machine activates - accelerating particles (toy cars).
