My work explores the materiality of digital media, seeking to uncover and interact with the structural supports that govern digital image technology. I draw upon the algorithmic environment of the computer to stage interventions within the typical processes of image capture and display. By manipulating the image from beneath its aesthetic surface, I aim to test how my interventions can create shifts in our understanding of visual content.
