My artistic interests lie in understanding human cultures. I investigate the narratives and histories that have been building blocks of culture through time and have constructed the world as we know it today. I also enjoy following the affects that contemporary technologies have had on cultures - both in positive and negative ways - and subsequently attempting to anticipate the trajectory of different cultures and humanity as a whole. Traditions, behaviors, identities and histories may be thrown into relief when contrasted against that which seems foreign. In the context of today’s social and political landscape, I hope this leads to many questions; I make no attempt to offer answers. My aim is to provoke thought and awareness. This results in a powerfully dynamic view of humanity and global relations. I attempt, in my work, to reflect the compression of time and the ways that we confront history in order to assess the present and conceptualize and steer the future.
