“Enter a bedroom, an office, a mind and a story all at once. Eat a Garfield sandwich with Hegel chips and a glass of Deleuze. Have a hybrid affair, on me. Get the sensation of being connected to everything, feel the art of being everywhere. I’d like to know what it’s like to level the genre distinction but for now I can only imagine it. Leveling the Genres connects and comments on disparate interests in literature, popular culture and technology. Sculptural videos, projected animations and digital/screen prints combine to create an experience meant to last for only a second. Call me, I have a desire to connect.”
