Artist statement


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 individual 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.

I present these investigations in various forms: performance, video, installation, web-based media and interactive media. My goal, which is based on self-experience and research, is to shift perspectives away from normality as well as to raise questions to the public. The viewer is confronted with questions regarding preconceived ideas and the superficial aesthetic we take for granted.

My approach allows me to occupy both virtual worlds and physical space. Some of my works discuss the existence of human beings within the physicality of the Internet and social media. Does the human body end at skin? Does the human identity begin and end with our bodies? Surrounded by technology, human existence in virtual environments such as social media becomes as important as their existence in reality. I also make works to manifest a relationship between individuals and the evolving technologies, raising questions about the interconnection between human and media, such as cameras and computers.
