Collaboration with Michelle Tillander, 2005, revised in 2009
We link over a billion people in real time through the Internet, with thoughts and images through the minimum unit of bits in 0s and 1s, and volumes of information that are updated by doubling every seventy-three days. Contemporary digital communication and its culture have become embedded in our senses and daily lives and are influencing how we come to know, think, and express ourselves. The continually changing nature of communication in digital visual culture is what motivates the collaborative project titled Iterative Convergence.
The installation with the artist, Michelle Tillander is accompanied by an interactive video installation that juxtaposes chairs, monitors, and audience interactions. The work was selected to show in the exhibition entitled Bit, Byte, Dot, Spot: Post-digital Art at the Tampa Museum of Art, Florida from April 14 to July 11, 2009. The show is intended to support and research new media art including computer-based games, web-based programs, book art, digital photography, and experimental video/film.
