I am a multimedia artist with a profound love for misplaced and forgotten objects, techniques and stories. I believe moving and old something into a new and fresh context has the capacity of reviving it into something not only alive again, but richer; something that keeps old wisdom (as dramatic as it may sound) and covers itself with new knowledge and new technology, becoming an ever transforming hybrid. Strangely enough, that is how innovation actually works most of the time, if one looks into history’s dynamics.
Throughout my professional practice, I have built on the relationship between applied arts (in my case, silver-based and alternative photography, photo-object, video and interactive installation) and scientific practices (optics, physics, chemistry), as a basis of rethinking and innovating not only society, but also how we look at, relate to and develop art and acquire knowledge. My main interest of research and practice is the photographical as a scientific tool and the inter-dependencies between paradigm shifts, scientific/technological breakthroughs and cultural changes.
My work questions the conditions of the appearance of image in the context of instrumentalized vision and ultimately, instrumentalized identity and communication channeling. My aim is to renegotiate the connections between dissociated fields (art and science, for example) and conceptual art as being part of a reactive or – at times – autistic medium. As such, I comment on themes surrounding identity loss, objectification, exographic memory, time and how they are activated and acted on, within our contemporary society.
