    Artist Statement

    When I was a kid, I often empathized with inanimate objects. A Kleenex box on my headboard felt unloved because I never held it as I did my stuffed animals. Consequently, I would sometimes add it to my plush family for snuggling.



    Looking through the lenses of playfulness, emotional warmth, and scenes from a dramatic child-like imagination, the ‘bots series seeks to explore the sentience of non-sentient beings. Each piece searches for a line between humanity and technology, a singular point when robots can finally know emotion.



    Like the torn and cut scraps of paper used to create these scenes, each picture records just a tiny fragment of a single, precious life experience, felt by the ‘bots in each thump of their metallic, ticking hearts.
