Short bio:

My area of expertise is image-making using 3D software. I research potential meaning and aesthetics in such image-making with reference to 20th century and 21st century philosophers. Currently I am looking at the emerging aesthetic of games art and my personal focus tends to oscillate between the photoreal and the hyperreal.
My research interests include Photography, Multimedia, and Fine Art, the creation of three and four-dimensional virtual worlds, cyber-feminism, cyber-architecture, cyber-cultures, cyberspace as a metaphor for how we live and may live and satire and subversion in Cyberspace.
