For a brief moment, I could breathe…

multimedia sculpture (2020)

single-channel video/4-channel surround sound, 55” vertical LED screen, 4 medium-sized speakers, XLR cables & electricity cords.9:05 min./loop, dimension variable.

A dwelling between the withdrawal of the body and the leaking of its ephemeral presence.
This work meditates on the increasing state of opposition/contradiction in our daily life through technology, where the constant reproduction of ourselves is a symptom of our contemporary moods of consumption, that render realities into an infinite simulation of representations.
The work attempts to question the notion of intimacy in conjunction with hyper-moods of online persona making and time/memory disruption.

pretending on the verge of blue!

sound performance (2020 - ongoing)

A call for slowing down that denotes a response to the accelerating instability and uncertainty we have been increasingly facing. And an attempt to meditate on the implications of experiencing the world through technology and the manufacturing of new forms of pressure, fear, and draining feelings.

Hint, hint! Can you hear me now?

internet-based project (in-progress)

On the commodification of feelings as a signature product of cyberspace nowadays. How does the machine speak to us as the mediator or the promoter of feelings? And what kind of vocabulary is being used in this process of commodification?
