The participation in, and facilitation of creative process is a mysterious obligation.

It is fueled largely by the emotional relief of establishing or returning to a familiar relationship with tools, materials and techniques. This spiritual arrangement with the physical world is enough for me, as in the typical idea of “…journey as destination…”

-Andrew W. Smith

Despite my career path, I am not one who feels that every square inch of the world should one day be covered in pixels. While the technical tools for the marriage of media to environment continually entice me, I am mindful of what artist Ali Moneni described to me as "the tyranny of the RGB"
