Copied and pasted from a MFA app cover letter:
My process is an evolving exploration of how technology influences and
documents forms of expression. Increasingly inexpensive access to digital hardware
and software as well as the ubiquity of the Internet has democratized creation and delivery of creative content.
As the Internet become our main channel of information, the individual now has the same authorial powers as the largest publishers from decades past.
This burgeoning democracy has created a database of the world’s creative output accessible by almost anyone anywhere on earth.
Hundreds of billions of photographs and videos are now accessed by a simply typed command.
This unlimited access to a never ending flow of information has lead me to heavily consider how technology affects culture and how we perceive a world increasingly experienced through this singular channel.
How does the creative individual perceive one’s own work with access to the work of millions of others? How does the Internet affect our perception of reality?
