Artist Statement

I create works of assembly. By utilizing a variety of disparate components in any given medium and constructing a cohesive whole, I look to mimic the disorder and confusion our conflicted, human lives end up creating naturally through our linear experience with time. My focus is not to communicate through any single process but rather craft a language that translates across multiple mediums; a message that resonates by any means of interaction.

Site Information

Distorted Perspective was registered on 5 January 1999. While it has served a variety of looks and purposes over its 20-year history, it has consistently been the digital extention of a real-world existence.

(as is with that analogue world, communication methods are often inconsistent—thus on this site the various texts may be grammatically or structurally incorrect in terms of punctuation or capitalization. this is an intentional choice based in media&linguistic studies to have some words and sentences be more representative than literal, more personal than professional)

This site is primarily hand-coded and custom built—the current iteration utilizes the Skeleton and Pikabu responsive frameworks for a foundation of a custom WordPress theme for publishing & management.


Distorted Perspective is typeset in Neue Haas Grotesk by Christian Swartz and Poynter Oldstyle Display by Font Bureau.
