In 2008, I moved away from textile pattern and bilateral symmetrical compositions and began exploring the engineering designs and colors found in computer motherboards. The resulting expressions were created with the same freedom and the results have become visually more dynamic and engaging. The addition of holographic film adds more color and an expected phenomenological element.

Conceptually, the PATTERN FUSION: MOTHERBOARD series creates a two-dimensional confluence of analog materials with their graphic content that are layered within a composition replicating a printed circuit board containing the principal components of a computer, with connectors into which other circuit boards can be slotted.
