Its always fun watching the audience reactions to the big geeky art pieces.

This is usually about how it goes:
People see it from a distance and are surprised by it. They. have never seen anything quite like it before; A larger piece of art that speaks to them in a way most art does not. It is overtly about something that is a big part of their lives, their mobile device.

Then as they approach it, they notice something familiar in the iconography. It may be different things for different people. But something usually connects to an experience in their past. A little smile appears and they begin to look more and deeper.

.It i not uncommon for show patrons to spend several minutes gazing at these art works.

When people discover certain elements that have an important meaning to them personally, that’s when I know my art has hit its mark. That’s satisfying and downright fun. It is also extremely educational to this artist. It gives me great feedback on the art at hand and insights for future works.

My art is not about lofty ideas too high up and out of range for people to grasp. It is about the audience and the audience’s’s real life experience with technology. It is deliberately within reach. It is about the demystifying, not patronizing. Really, the audience is the canvas, the art is the pallet.
