My work ponders on the consequences of technology encountering one’s intimacy, self and mutual understanding. In several projects over the past years I have been questioning about the digital image and representation of the self, algorithmic identity and heteronomy, structures of empathy existing in-between and beyond verbal communication, and the ghostly forces embedded in informational turmoil. Engaging in long-term and research based operations—with latent and diverse output dispersed in different forms and formats, or no output at all—enabled me to develop a practice detached from visuality or style, including the possibility of failure as a means to address change and multiplicity, and to embrace versioning and revisions as a method. Comprehending the threshold of the physical with the nonmaterial, or the contradiction of existing as a human body at the interchange with hybrid, digital and nonhuman entities is central to my activity as an artist. I have approached different sources with nonlinear/non-rational inclination, both as quasi-readymade material as well as raw material for further rumination, transposition and displacement, and permutation in time.
