In my work, I attempt to use mechanical means to recreate some small measure of an arcadian dreamworld. For these works, I draw with a 3D modeling program to mediate/contemplate/honor/invoke the structures that house different versions of utopia. I have started with the hanging gardens of Babylon, interpreting spaces once full of the living. By making my renderings full of light and bright colors I hope to initiate a sense of contemporaneous possibility in those around me now to consider these worlds that others before us attempted to create. Currently dystopian worlds seem to have the favor of popular culture, but I ask that that we dig deep in our collective Jungian subconscious to find that idealism that drove others before us to attempt to create a better, more marvelous world.
