3D computer models

These first two are unfinished pieces, I'm not exactly sure what the final form would be... probably videos, possibly composited onto a new backgrounds. I think of them as abstract sculpture....or at least relating to my early abstract sculpture work and a body of drawings that references these arrangements of aircraft only using schematics.

These next two are essentially done, but I think they would need to be rapid-prototyped (and possibly recast in metal or resin) so that the objects really existed in space as artifacts of videogame warfare

I love the idea of video game artifacts... I think these "essentially done" models are exactly that... as with the rest of your work (that I'm familiar with), these contain profound statements within an aesthetic object that remains distinctly pertinent to your approach... I'm sorry for this language, all I'm trying to say is that I appreciate what I think of as a certain coolness (or professionalism, perhaps) that is apparent in your work and am envious of your (for lack of a better term) focus...
I found a similar vibe in your friend James Sham's work (and look forward to his show here) and really appreciate work that exists in this vein.
