Digital art with an essentialist approach, a thread I've been traversing since the 1990's. Wrote a bit about this topic alongside some of my art in an online magazine in 2006. I have a desire to explore tools whose surfaces have barely been scratched due to our habit of rushing headlong into the latest invention. Admitting an addiction to technology and gadgets yet not wanting to abandon them completely, I walk the middle path. From a pragmatic stance, the less you do with technology, the less future maintenance it will require - more archival, less burden, etc. From a design perspective this approach often 'works' simply because people are overwhelmed with consumption. Many have explored these realms of digital simplicity, and its a comfortable place.
