'I am an artist who defies definitions of genre and works across various media, including but not limited to photography, video, performance, installation, and digital intervention.

By parodying social norms and pop culture to exaggerating certain formal aspects inherent to our contemporary society, I do works that can be seen as tests. Sometimes they appear provocative yet enlightening; at other times, they seem typical by-products of resources superabundance and marketing.

My works focus on the possibility of falsehood, the circulation of the socio-economic system, the potential between body and perception, and solarpunk under post-consumerism. They question the coerciveness derived from the more profound meaning and the superficial aesthetic appearance of an image.

As subjects become transformed through research and practice, courageous conversations become catalysts for a more connected and empathetic.'
