My father has exponentially affected who I am as a visual thinker, designer and artist. He has acted as a mentor, collaborator, and motivator throughout my life. His wisdom has been highly influential in developing my methodologies as a creator.
I strongly believe we are the places we have been. When he was 18, he left to fight in the Vietnam War. Still a boy, he embarked on a journey that would force him to become a man. He began writing and drawing in a small journal just days before leaving the U.S. Navy. Upon returning to Minnesota, he continued to fill the pages with observations, quotations, questions, and sketches. After a visit to see a friend he met while in the Navy, he unknowingly left this journal behind. Forty-one years later, it was returned and he selflessly gave it to me.
His journal inspired a series of poster designs. I created an eight layer screen print and two digitally rendered collage compositions.

Creative code plays a large role within interactive art. It is about using powerful programming tools to create intensely moving interactive and generative visual elements. Processing, a programming language, is one of the most widely known creative coding tools. Built with Java, it provides access to deep intricate parts of your computer in a simplified way.
Digital Permanence functions by using the combination of custom coded programming, a laser pointer, a digital projector, a webcam, and a laptop. The program tracks the drawn graffiti lines virtually by processing the brightest light spots from the camera feed and then maps that information onto the projection screen.
The laser movements are viewed by the webcam, the software then traces these movements of the laser spot into x/y positions, then the projector acts to expand the image of the laser movements back onto the surface.
