I am a postdigital artist with a profound love for misplaced and forgotten objects, technologies and stories. I believe reactivating or adapting techniques or technologies which get so easily buried underneath ever-growing novelty, does more than help keep old wisdom (as dramatic as it may sound), but rather bring about new knowledge and new approaches to technology, science and art, becoming an ever transforming hybrid. Strangely enough, that is how innovation actually works most of the time, if one looks into history’s dynamics. And paradigms have the bad habit of not changing of their own accord.
Throughout my professional practice, I have built on the relationship between new and old through a continuous dialogue between applied arts (silver-based, alternative and experimental photography, holography and other image recording media, video and interactive or participatory installations) and scientific practices (optics, physics, chemistry), as a basis of rethinking and innovating not only art and society, but rather how we perceive, relate to and develop the accumulation of realities we live in and identities we internalize.
As such, I address issues related to instrumented vision, tangible and digital identity, objectification and exographic memory, while challenging the public to take an active stand, beyond the speculative or formal questioning manifested in the objects and technologies that I compose or recompose. My works are ’emotion activators’, assembling an interactive and experiential space, while shedding light over our (lack of) responsibility in the construction of ethical media, art and technologies.
