This series of works, titled Liminal Blue, is focused on the concept of liminality, or the transition from one state of being to another. It is an attempt to capture the complicated feelings one feels at the cusp of something new; excited yet unsure, eager but reticent, confident yet uncertain. The process of finding one's way in a new unfamiliar place, mentally, emotionally, or physically, can be daunting, yet exhilarating. This feeling of being in a liminal space is often incredibly uncomfortable for most people, myself included. After moving from New York, to Connecticut, then London, and now Denver, the lack of stability and order has left me off balance and searching for a center of gravity by which to orient myself in this new reality. This series is for me, the artist, a tool of finding my footing, and for the viewer, a contemplative commentary on life's transitory spaces and our place within them.

"The Universe is an illusion, a small blue four dimensional cue controlled by a hyper intelligent being"
Using cutting edge open source Artificial Intelligence systems to create one of a kind works of art. These works are created using parameters to guide its creation towards what I would like it to create. For example the prompt for AI 20 was "The Universe is an illusion, a small blue four dimensional cue controlled by a hyper intelligent being". Often I will give the program images of my existing work to start, what it creates from the collaboration is astonishing.
