Social MediaFlickr:

These drawings are sourced from social media: Facebook, email and the rest of daily disposable digital culture. These images circulate as mere nothingness, a split second in the endless twitter. I draw the images of friends that strike me, that declare a rich inner world amidst the nothingness of digital chatter. Then, I give the drawing to the original source, and insert a moment of gift culture into that of the commodity form, and reinforce the haptic nature of lived experience.
