I am particularly drawn to the contemporary facets of photography, where images originate in the realm of imagination rather than happenstance. Currently, my artistic practice incorporates various methodologies, notably harnessing open-source AI technologies to manipulate datasets and synthesize visual narratives. My process involves curating information from diverse sources, recording landscapes, and creating datasets, which I combine with original compositions. Inspired by fluxus, I craft virtual instructions and challenge rules exploring identity and the psychological impacts of digital existence. Recurring themes in my work explore: the interrogation of the American Dream, water as catalyst, death of the body, and invisible facets of marginal experiences.
