Artist Statement

I’ve always been interested in technology, especially the design of things and the way they’re put together. It goes deeper than that, when I view humanity as a whole I have to ask ‘what is it about us that wants to make all this?’
That question affords me the ability to examine not only the ‘why’ but also the final product.
From our humble beginnings we’ve demonstrated an amazing ability for progress, we’ve wanted ‘better’ and ‘more’, technology is only a part of it, but for me and the society we live in today it’s the part accessible and relatable for everyone. As we hurtle towards an unknown and uncertain future, technology and the way we use it will become increasingly more important. It has already become so integrated into our lives that I doubt many of us could live without it. As we build more and invent more, are we helping our humanity or are we robbing ourselves of it?

  1. I recently purchased a framed print of an amazing charcoal of Frankenstein (why is interesting, but another story) it is marked Yanny 2001, New York City, I’m just trying to confirm the origin and artist. Any assistance is appreciated!

    1. Did you ever find anything out about your Frankenstein print? I have the same one. It is very well done. Marked Yanny NYC 2001 as well. I have not found anything anywhere about this item. My Tattoo Guy is a huge Frankenstein fan. I trade him items for ink. I hate to part with this, but if I do, I would like to know a value for trade. Thanks SG
