Sequence Block: an invented "pseudo-scientific" study populated by awkward, low-resolution characters. These arcade-like icons were developed from abstracted imagery gleaned from chromosomal studies, particularly those focused on code abnormalities.
Imbuing each of these characters with an individual personality and power, I created strange, yet familiar environments for them to explore and conquer, may the strongest pixel win.
This series is made using machine embroidery on screen, with drawing and collage on duralar and vinyl. By utilizing familiar symbols gleaned from science textbooks and "dumbed-down" descriptive diagrams, I create a pseudo-scientific narrative for the viewer. My processes for this series and their visual results correspond directly to the heated issues of technology, art and the ethical questions raised by our dependence on technology and the decoding of the human genome.
