Artist Statement

My work focuses on creating spaces and places where there is no narrative sequence, where past-present-future encounters take place, involving an encounter between light and darkness, between natural and synthetic and between the alien and the familiar.

I am looking for the range of these realities, the intersection of primordial consciousness, intuitive versus the "logical" conception of contemporary reality. For example, I like to think about what we will leave humanity in the future, what fossils they will find and what they will think of us. I look at our time from the outside: our habits of consumption, violence, human and nature relations, and our relationship with death and our own humanity. 

In the spaces I create, an apocalyptic aspect is present - futuristic, earthly materialism coupled with foreign and neon colors, through which I seek to create a multi layered, hyper-colored experience exploring the connections between human creativity and technology, centering on the connections between light and sound, ancient and futuristic, real and vurtual.
