Official Artist Statement
Travis Johnson (2015)

I began experimenting with audio and digital image manipulation as a way to document my experiences in life. Inspired by recursive patterns in nature, I soon realized that these systems parallel human consciousness. Since then, my work has been focused on my personal interpretation of these systems. As I refined my skills, I started taking my past work and incorporating it into new pieces, using current technology as it was made available to me. As I developed my body of work, I started creating environments for people to go where they could view, as well as be an active part of the work.

I believe that every person has a natural creative drive and one of my primary goals is to encourage other people to develop their unique artistic identity. I do this by setting up spaces where I give people a chance to interact with my art pieces along with giving them access to technology they may not have used before. My role in these experiences is by utilizing an assortment of mediums including live AV and DJ sets, canvas and vinyl, sculpture and installation. The interaction between my work and the viewer creates a divine confluence of energy which is the driving force behind my creative process.
