"My artwork is about this connection and its mediation through light. My photographs are all actual long-exposure photographs (not computer-generated) in which I actively use my body to render with stationary lights, the camera acting as a sort of retina onto which light can paint its impressions, ultimately engendering imagery that resembles entoptic phenomena. Rather than passively capturing space with the camera, I actively create new spaces that resemble the inner space of the viewer, and what I would image to resemble the immaterial, energy-based world that lies beyond our senses."
