I am interested in the way that we perceive historical objects in the digital age, often encountered through the flat planes of our various devices. The experience of information on the Internet is a flattening of histories in which multiple vantage points are presented simultaneously. In "XIV-XYZ" Bernini’s bust of Louis XIV was abstracted using 3D modeling software and rendered in semi-transparent, mirrored glass using traditional stained glass techniques. From any angle, the viewer is presented with facets ranging from translucent to fully reflective. The result is an object based in history that continuously engages its present environment.
