It began as idle play in the 1980’s, with my SX-70 Polaroid camera and a TV set that had broken color adjustment dials. It evolved into a large collection of otherworldly images, documenting what I created on the small screen.

A couple of these images were included in my first exhibit in New York City, a group show called “Acceptable Entertainment” — they were hung alongside photographs by John Baldessari, Harry Callahan, Nancy Burson, Robert Heinecken, and a number of other photographers I greatly admired. I was in my 20’s then and to say I was humbled, buoyed, and in awe is an understatement.
