I am interested in sound and movement all as cycles of construction and destruction in an era that is marked by the direction of advanced digitization. I explore the ability of sound to reshape, unfold and energize our perception of space, looking into the acoustic property of objects and forms that surround us. My artworks are not fixed things. They extend to include organic and inorganic intensities. They are fundamentally in a state of exchange, negotiation or reconfiguration. They exist in a state of potential. They are informed by the digital even when not in digital format, These works are shaped by a sense of data excess and data vulnerability through technology. My art relates to the resonant qualities of all things and organisms, the perpetual dynamic exchange of initiating and responding, from the micro to the systemic. I am interested in site specificy and the constant change of hybrid states of transit places. I am concerned with the questions of what changes, and above all how something new emerges.‚Äč
