Gender roles, citizenship and personal stories are where my image making has evolved. I am a multi-media artist and informed by scientific research that is closely linked with human behavior. The process of invention is integral to my work and through this I create and manipulate images. I will continue to experiment and rethink the given norms of an artistic society, which will enable me to fuel my creativity. I feel that film, video, and newer technologies are not simply techniques, but the defining elements of our culture and society. I aim for my art to extend into an imaginary realm, crossing the boundaries of what has already been achieved. I will continue to gain an understanding of the complexities of process, expression, and representation. The essence of my work is revolved around fact, fiction, and fantasy and the work takes upon the form of experimental photography, stop motion animation, video, and sound. My art grows from chaotic concepts and takes upon the role of a narrative story, exploring areas where space, image, time: physical and virtual intersect. I explore the underlying methodological and social, political, and cultural issues brought to light by the use of emerging technologies. Throughout the process I use simulation techniques, with the interaction of electronic and physical forms of modeling. [Content provided by Carolina Vasquez]
