An artist working with electronics and electronic media, based in Brooklyn, NY

how does one "prepare" a digital camera? i've never heard of preparation in that sense, i'm very interested.

I’m using “prepared” in the musical sense of the word, as in “prepared piano” (see: John Cage), also as a stand in for “circuit bent”.

By adding wires, and other electronic components, I am altering the normal function of these cameras much in the same way that external objects are used to alter the timbre of an acoustic instrument.

Circuit bending is a term specific to the medium of electronics where the preparation of devices entails rewiring, short circuiting, and the addition of components or circuits to alter the output.
