TRUE WHITE Polyphony of Space

The work addresses alternative perspectives to understanding what is to be human-in-the-world. The installations (glass, moving image, sound) and photographs reflect upon the ways in which we co-create our reality in relation to the environment. 

I explore the levels of image augmentation with the intention to obscure and and reveal its representation and ask the viewer to assume the position where they question whether what they are seeing is real or imagined. Spatial and temporal choreography of created experiences resonates with the notion that our identity, memory and bodily encounters are held within the line of our movement.

    Glass

  • The potentiality of my work addresses alternative perspectives and perceptions to understanding what is to be human-in-the-world. The installations (glass, moving image, sound) and photographs reflect upon the ways in which we co-create our reality in relation to the environment.

    The focus of current work lies in experiential sculptural interventions and site responsive installations. Art projects that explore the space created by the tension between linear, traditional materials and nonlinear, hi-tech processes are my central interest.
