URBAN NOISE combines an exploration of the aesthetic and conceptual value of image failure by exploiting the artifacts produced by false exposure in digital photography with a contemplative study of the contemporary urban environment.  The contemporary urban environment is flooded with so much information that we necessarily turn most of it into background noise to survive. There is so much conflicting information that competes for our attention that I am intrigued by how we sort out our valuation of what is worth our attention. I seek to discover my own stillness within the overwhelming cacophony of contemporary information overload through the act of unconventional street photography.
