People spend way more time looking at art on the internet than they do in person.

For the moment, you may call me a one hit wonder. These are screen shots of my website's google analytics. An average day brings 5-10 visitors, and today brought 837. The spike in traffic is thanks to,,,,, and others. They have all recently featured a sculpture I made with Mike Fleming in 2010, called Eternity.

What amazes me is that the average time spent on my site is nearly a minute and a half. This might not sound like much, but the average time people spend looking at a work of art in a gallery or museum is 4 seconds. Is the internet really making peoples' attention spans shorter, or is it allowing them to focus on one thing at a time? Which experience is more overwhelming - surfing blogs, or visiting the MoMA?

It's really hard to tell the short run from the long run.

Journey, 2008

9" x 12" x 10" (installation dimensions variable)

video of rapid eye movement, digital picture frame, battery pack, cardboard box

A video of my eyes watching the world go by continuously plays on the digital picture frame inside the cardboard box. The box can be shipped or installed in various ways.

Fun things happen when you meet in the middle.
