The “Recursive Expressions” uses electromyography (EMG) data collected while squinting to generate form. The numerical EMG data was visualized in custom software written by the artist to repeat, rotate, and randomly colorize the EMG waveforms. The computer-generated images “weave” the waveforms together in both directions—warp and weft. While the overall image has a geometric, unified, and even tidy form, upon close inspection one can see the chaotic structure of each end of each waveform that has been altered “by hand”. Using a vector-imaging program, the flat zero value at the beginning and end of each waveform has been teased out and reshaped to create a woven fabric-like appearance to the overall image.  Recursive Expressions is in the collection of the NYU Langone Medical Center (New York City) and selections from the series have been exhibited at ACRE Projects (Chicago), Capsule Gallery (Houston), New York Institute of Technology (New York City) and Occurrence Gallery (Montréal).
