The smallest, most insignificant change happening at the chromosomal level, alters life is ways no one can ever predict. Many of us live with altered lives. I often wonder what life may have been like, had the slight change, the size less than a grain of salt, had not happened in the embryonic stage of my development. Science is fascinating, and it has taught me that every little thing I do in life matters. This piece is a reminder of that appreciation.
Acts of repetition and patterning are continuous during my creative journey. They help keep me centered and gain a sense of calm amidst current world chaos.
In this piece it manifests through meticulous and purposefully drawn, symbols mixed with binary code (ones and zeroes) clustered, repetitive and tightly organized. These represent noise and chaos. Part of that noise involves how present day tech consumption filters or even replaces so much of our real life experience with the actual world because the physical world is disappearing. Putting this noise into some sense of organization is satisfying and centering, and perhaps my nostalgia for how life was before technology comes into play and is part of the reason I am so sensitive to present day life on this planet.
