"My work has always been driven by a keen interest in how we, as consumers, negotiate the barrage of internet driven information that impacts us daily".


Traveling through the meta-sphere in times that are equal parts disturbing and hopeful is not a mission for the timid. For artists like Leslie Alfin, who choose to address the good, bad, and ugly in their daily practice, it can become a dance that produces joy and burnout. In her  discovery forays, she explores images about the current events of our time found in the meta levels of google searches that represent the decomposition of meaning and truth as they descend into deeper levels of data and become increasingly untethered to original context.

Leslie lives and works in the footills of the south western Berkshire Mountains just over the border of Columbia County in the Hudson Valley region of New York.
