Andrew Ginzel, Ideate


I attempt to create tools for perception that explore the territory delineated between human biological, sociological, psychological, and philosophical and technological evolution and de-synchronization with the remainder of the natural world. To stretch a moment of observation, to attempt to see into time itself.
