.I want the entire thing to be a well-rounded picture of who I am creatively by the end 

Everything I make is  in some way going back into my own history and picking up threads

and combining them in new ways. The way I look at it is, I have created a system or an

.instrument that is generative and enjoy using that system or machine to generate new things

.That’s where my true joy is as an artist
