Working both with physical and digital media, my central discourse deals with how we as human beings make sense of the world around us and the dichotomous nature of humanity. In particular I study how people living in different contexts form “truths” from direct and indirect encounters and the proliferation of these “truths” through online and offline means to form patterns and memes.
Artworks explore contemporary concerns such as the mediation and formation of data into codes of association, the languages of belonging and the collisions and collusions of cultural factions. By drawing on scientific and philosophical reasoning such as, Hall’s ‘Reception Theory’, Turing’s ‘Reaction Diffusion Theory’ or the laws of tantra, I explore the patterns formed by recontextualising such concerns.
My work is nourished by actively engaging people to feed a work from different perspectives with source data or actively being part of the work. Looking beyond the surface traits such as identity I try to draw out both the rational and irrational that makes us who we are. Using play, metaphor, repetition, ritual and reflection I try to create artworks (or situations that lead to the creation of artworks) that sit as a mirror to contemporary human insecurities.
