Factitious Imprints focuses on the idea of constructed/artificial nature and how this notion can be documented and defined through a palimpsest of imprints that simultaneous human and natural processes fabricate on surfaces/terrains; furthermore, what kind of fragments these actions leave as relics of a possible post human or post natural landscape.
Incorporating 3D modelled and rendered structures, perspectives and edited camera imagery taken from navigation tools such as drones, Google Maps, and handheld recording devices, Factitious Imprints courses through a distorted landscape of overlapping surfaces in smaller or larger scale—from our own skin to food containers to simulations of plants and oceans —that shifts and changes form as we move through it. The landscape stands there as an amalgam of abstractions, mainly because it declares itself as an unknown place in an unknown time. Achronic territories immersed into an almost post apocalyptic ambience.

In my practice I use time-based media and digital tools in order to explore the relationship between digital space and our material reality through videos, objects and installations. My work delves into issues and themes related to simultaneity, the merging and dissolving of our surroundings with the virtual in addition to the constant diffusion of fabricated images that define our everyday experience. Also, processes that are established through online presence, as well as the traces that our operations inscribe to the objects and habitat where we find ourselves situated into, through our continuous interaction with devices and machinic artifacts.
