Statement

My practice is largely concerned with the topics of border politics, forms of surveillance, and the proliferation of technology. I am particularly interested in the role technology plays in the construction of contemporary and historical narratives and how it affects and forms our understanding of reality. Working across media including installation, video, photography, and sculpture, my practice is characteristic of a critical approach to contemporary forms of power and blends together elements of defiance, skepticism, and cynicism. The subject of the European border, security, and division is in my works intertwined with fast-expanding surveillance in the physical as well as the digital realm. A reoccurring element within my practice is the reflection on the relationship between resistance and complicity and the role of the audience.
