We link over a billion people in real time through the Internet, with thoughts and images through the minimum unit of bits in 0s and 1s, and volumes of information that is updated by doubling every seventy three days. Contemporary digital communication and its culture have become embedded in our senses and daily lives and are influencing how we come to know, think, and express ourselves. The continually changing nature of communication in digital visual culture is what motivates the recent project titled Iterative Convergence. The project is a collaborative installation with the artist, Michelle Tillander and will be accompanied by interactive video installation that juxtaposes chairs, monitors, and audience’s interactions. The project provides a critical perspective on dialogue in digital media culture.The project was selected to show in the exhibition entitled Bit, Byte, Dot, Spot: Post-digital Art at the Tampa Museum of Art, Florida from April 14 to July 11, 2009. The show is intended to support and research new media art including computer-based game, web-based program, book art, digital photography, and experimental video/film.
