Visual art, in a basic sense, is about creating visual data. The source for this visual data varies from artist to artist; some use what they see in dreams to inspire them, others remix existing visual information into entirely new visuals. My practice attempts to turn seemingly inconsequential or illegible data sources into art through the use of systematic analysis. I select data that forms noise in the torrents of information that flood our everyday lives.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
