The DCP Series of Digital Images are direct visualizations of data generated by a digital camera as it takes a picture. Electronic processes associated with the normal operations of the camera, which are usually taken for granted, are revealed through an act of intervention. The camera is turned inside-out through a complex of short-circuits, selected by the artist, transforming the camera from a picture taking device into one that renders raw data (electronic signals) as images. In essence, these images are snap-shots of electronic signals dancing through the camera's circuits, manually rerouted, written directly to the on-board memory device. Rather than seeing images of the world through a lens, we catch a glimpse of what the camera sees when it is forced to peer inside its own mind.
