Witold Gombrowitz:

"After so many things I could no longer enumerate, the nails, the frog, the sparrow, the bit of wood, the pole, the nib, the lemon peel, the cardboard box, the chimney, the cork, the arrow on the ceiling, the gutter, the hand, the lumps of earth, the bed springs, the ashtray, bits of wire, toothpicks, pebbles, the chicken, warts, gulfs, islands, needles, I had been ready for anything, but not for a teapot. There is sort of an excess about reality, and after a while it can become intolerable."

A New York City native, Matthew Ostrowski has been creating art with electronic and digital media for over twenty years, having worked as a composer, performer and installation artist, exploring work with music, multimedia, video and theater. Using digital tools and formalist techniques to engage with quotidian materials -- sonic, physical, and cultural – Ostrowski's work explores the liminal space between the virtual and phenomenological worlds.
