Fleming, Pete


I approach the digital image from a materialist position. Starting with light and touch, my installations deal with the sensual and haptic nature of digital images. Integral to this practice is my concept of a “word-image-touch-object” – a term that is intended to articulate the composite nature of digital media as it moves between servers, fingertips, light emissions, and feelings. It is my intention to open a space in which to imagine alternative ways to relate with the world. My goal is to to practice a material philosophy that develops blurry, hopeful, and uncertain forms.
