Haleworks is the digital exhibition and virtual lab space of writer/artist David Hale
I am a writer that traces the networks that connect the digital, mechanical, biological, and atomic in an attempt to understand what it is to be human awash in this sea of data. By applying engineering principles to writing method, and burgeoning technology to artistic form, I seek to understand and divulge the interconnectivity of the structures that make up global society. In conjunction with these sentiments, I work with anxiety-inducing technologies that encompass artificial intelligence, genetic engineering, tracking algorithms, and robotics. By working with these technologies the possibilities, benign or otherwise, created by technology can be better understood by the populace. My writing motifs lie within the nexus of the conceptual, allegorical, spiritual, digital, technological, and biological. I write poetry and poets, inside computer programs, within traditional discourse, and between the nucleotides of DNA. My writing cannot exist solely on a page, though sometimes it is published in books. To understand, I build. To disclose I write.
