Artist statement

'I am a visual artist whose work spans image-making (photography, film and data visualization), writing, investigative journalism, psychology and philosophy. Among my chief concerns are learning to see where people’s boundaries lie, especially in relation to technology, science and nature. Do we still control technology – or does technology control us?
Although taking reality as a starting point, my narratives intend to be very personal and subjective, sometimes bridging the divide between reality and fiction, and between art and documentary. Photo books, writings, exhibitions and video installations are the favorite media to present my work.'
