ARTIST STATEMENT

In my artistic practice I use video, projection mapping, and interactive digital media such as biosensors to explore how humans consciously and unconsciously develop a sense of self. My work has progressed from a focus on the introspective world and the power of mental perception, to a study of the cognitive self as it is influenced by the body, and intertwined with other species and its environment. My work is in conversation with theories of embodiment and post-humanism, and studies of phenomenology and affect. I consider my practice a conceptual and research based method, linked strongly to critical theory.
