I explore the ritualistic spaces, masks, and myths of media and how they change the way we perceive our world over time. I am interested in deconstructing the invisible structures of our technologically saturated culture and the materialization of digital aesthetics.
I intentionally place myself in spaces of information overload. As I navigate this space, I sift through its complexities and patterns, and over time start to build an understanding of how I exist within it. It is in this spirit of exploration that I create new ways of seeing and experiencing our digital existence.
