Artist Statement

I investigate ways the virtual redefines the physical world, from cloud corporations transforming geopolitics through information flows, to machine learning algorithms influencing languages. Using custom-made software and collected material from Internet, I create images, installations, and interactive works, which engage with digital communications’ architecture. Product of research-based processes, my works condense abundance of information into unsuccessful data visualizations that reject simple categorizations. These artworks hint their origin through poetic assemblages of found texts that escort them. As potential cartographies of space between the online and offline worlds, my artworks evoke existential reflections to a world co-habited by humans and algorithms.
