DVAA: What projects are you currently working on?

PM: The next series I'm working on is called dot exe. My work mainly deals with computer code, I am a programmer by trade. The whole concept of Glitch Art isn't new but what IM doing with it is. But EXE is a file extension for an executable file format. An executable is a file that contains a program - that is, a particular kind of file that is capable of being executed or run as a program in the computer. So with this series I focusing more on one piece building off of one another. Each piece will be part of one big piece, so each one is a file of the next one. 

 

What have you seen or experienced lately that inspires you?

What drives me lately? I hit a deep spot with my depression. And I refuse to let that stop me from creating. You know that little voice in the back of your head that tells you your work isn't good enough, that your work is trash, that there are better artists then you. Well I do the opposite of what the voice says. I create and I will keep creating till the voice is silent.
