Bridging the Poles (video installation), At the Speed of Feelings (performance)
Bridging the poles is a video installation run by an algorithm designed to give more relevance to emotional dialecticism in disfavour of completely polarised content. Leveraging the principles of emotional contagion, this potentially leads to progressively disrupting the formation of echo chambers and eventually to a more open and complex environment of opinion exchange on social media.
In At the Speed of Feelings, five performers apathetically chew and blow bubble gums in different colours questioning how emotional response has shaped online communication up to a point where it has become its main drive. These outbursts are rapidly piling up and leaving traces, layer after layer, bringing us towards an emotional overdose.

My practice inhabits the liminal and nurtures the potential of porous thresholds. Stemming from the personal need for structure and the awareness of never really fitting into any, my work challenges normativity and its conventions in order to make room for divergence and otherness, while also offering a critique of the class system and its societal standards. I develop absurd constructs in which logic and language are ultimately deemed to fail, exposing their inherent limitations and wielding subtlety as a countermeasure to the relentless spectacle of everything. Adopting wry humor and a performative approach, I revel in the absurd and question the boundaries of comprehension and conformity, striving to carve out a space where meaning falters and the individual can both exist and truly belong.
