Despite its use of the latest technology, my work seems in many respects to hark back to a time when art and science were more closely allied, when symbolic and physical values were mixed together into systems that were scientifically false but culturally meaningful. Though alchemy is no longer a respectable pursuit, digital technologies and informatics are transmuting the world. Artists who work with informatics are the new alchemists.
