“My work consists of collage, sculpture, drawings, videos and installations. It investigates the tension between schedule and happenstance; the semblance of schematic order undone by chaos. Mankind is driven by an unshakeable faith in progress, where modern technology and constant growth leads us to a better world. My work explores a different outcome, where the automated force develops structures and minds of their own.”
Interview for ALICE Gallery, 2015.
