Regarding the ExperimentsCollection and experimentation are integral aspects of my process; collection occurs within and outside of the machine – drawing sketches, finding objects, creating images, forming words and sounds, all the time placing these fragments in a loose mess like a stack of papers strewn across a desk. By shuffling, cutting, breaking, glueing and mending these collections, patterns emerge that generate experiments with patterns of their own. Not every experiment is successful or of immediate use. Others serve their purpose by helping me to hone a particular idea or thought leading to renewed inspiration to collect.
Fragments, Prototypes and SketchesMany of these experiments were created with Macromedia Director prior to 2005. Some are Quicktime movies, some are interactive, most all are quick sketches, fragments from larger projects that have materialized or proof of concept pieces for interface elements.
