I am a communication designer and interdisciplinary artist working at the intersection of technology, design and philosophy. In my recent production I analyse and alter present digital ecosystems to set aesthetic and critical narratives that occur between reality and fiction. After years of questioning current visual cultures and their social impact, I am developing my own artistic practice to understand the politics of the contemporary digital image.

Longing: a memory
Ritual:a translocation


Ritual of Longing is a humble trial set of rituals which enable the practitioner and the spectator to dive deeper into their bond with the other significant being, a friend. A translocated friendship works as a vessel for personal exploration, highlighting the healing power of human connection.
