Up Front

As animals with limited senses and cognition, our perception of the world around us is merely a fraction of the information available in a moment. With science, and the right instruments, we can obtain quantitative data to help us understand exactly how much information our limited anatomy is missing, but this may not appeal to our subjective understanding of reality and primal aesthetic. So, I challenge myself to portray these elusive worlds in a manner palpable and stimulating to our insufficient eyes. In my work I attempt to show the details our eyes are not sensitive enough to perceive in the dark and the events that we are perhaps not patient enough to watch unfold.
