Joe Hamilton makes use of technology and found material to create intricate and complex compositions that exist online, offline and in-between. His recent work questions established notions of landscape
 and environment within a society that is becoming increasingly networked. He takes a kaleidoscopic look at computer-generated imagery as well as internet memes and explores how cyberspace is constantly changing the relationships between media technologies, space, and time.
