Artist Statement

Using conjunction & disjunction as key conceptual terms, I explore mechanisms and fictional interventions between perception, resistance, knowledge, and memory, through cognitive spaces inhabited and experienced. Can we redefine knowledge, information, time and place? Where do we explore memories and space, perceptions that are fragmented in time? What does it mean to redefine a place or information? I research these questions working with hybrid forms, sound, language, performance, objects, installation and moving image.
