I grew up in Manhattan. My mother was an artist; my father teaches philosophy. I went to Columbia College and earned a degree in mathematics from MIT. For 13 years I wrote the "C++ Q & A" column for Microsoft's MSDN Magazine. I've always felt drawn by the worlds of emotion and intellect. Digital dream collage is the perfect medium for me. It lets me explore the unconscious using tools that are technical and precise.
I believe computers can be used to create art. Not the synthetic constructions of 3D animation or virtual reality, where technology becomes an end in itself—but real art, where the message transcends the medium. Art that aspires to communicate. To convey an idea, a mood, a feeling. Art that's personal and yet attempts to touch the universal. Art that has the power to seduce.
Over 70 digital collages suitable for display on hi-res LCD (the dream screen) or framed prints. The images you see in this web gallery are reproduced at low resolution. Originals are hi-res. For more information, write me.

"Paul DiLascia draws imagery from existing irony. He combines phenomena to create the ultimate statement of contemporary dissolution... His juxtaposition of icons combine to reveal a future in which destruction becomes a common experience, and one which its inhabitants accept with resolution. We have been alerted!"
