Teaching Philosophy

Jacquard’s Loom may have been the beginning of digital culture, but man’s use of tools in cultural production goes all the way back to cave paintings. It is this long history of art and technology that helps us make sense of where we are and where we are going. These origins, histories, and discourses are an essential part of my approach and they balance the teaching of art practice. I view my courses’ technological student instruction as a precursor to the real endeavor: enabling students to make sense of their available tools and apply them to their artistic vision.
