My creative practice investigates the abstract roles of human beings in a technological world. I have experienced various cultural environments, which drew me to explore different existences of individuals in a philosophic and sociological sense.

I like deconstructing things. I explore the position of “self” within a system, which might be its cultural and historical heritage, a virtual space, or the physical world.

My investigations are presented in the processing of my art-making.

I make works to occupy both virtual worlds and physical space. I make works to discuss the existence of human beings within the physicality of the Internet and social media.

I make works to manifest a relationship between individuals and the evolving technologies.

I make works to present a narrative, in which machines conduct anthropomorphic behavior to perform, to implicate and to elicit.

I make works to raise questions.
