Artist Statement

Title: Hermes

A defender of travelers, Hermes navigates between the mortal and the immortal, relaying messages, often disguised. As we confront the challenges of our changing world, the digital realm has offered us lifelines as well as deceptions—a place where the agent can be as important as the substance.
