    Collaboration with Nathaniel Stern

    In my collaboration with Nathaniel Stern, we approach both old and new media as form. In "Distill Life," we permanently mount translucent prints and drawings directly on top of video screens, creating moving images on paper. We incorporate technologies and aesthetics from traditional printmaking - including woodblock, silk screen, etching, lithography, photogravure etc.—with the technologies and aesthetics of contemporary digital, video and networked art—to explore images as multidimensional. Our juxtaposition of anachronistic and disparate methods, materials and content—print and video, paper and electronics, real and virtual—enables novel approaches to understanding each.
