"In my lens-based artistic practice, I investigate how contemporary media culture, digital media and virtual space can rupture and disorientate one’s perception of reality. Exploring perception and memory within this slick and seamless façade of the virtual world reveals a hiatus which is presented by ‘new media’.
By carefully selecting sites, I present focused images which intend to ‘give pause’ and resist immediate consumption. Photographing the absence of people is to highlight that these key places were created by human imagination, which then materialized in some way. Searching for the place in which techne and poesis meet, these pieces aim to find the contact zone between culture and psychology.
Through my installation work I use text, lens-based media, and light sculpture to reflect a layered theoretical, visual and conceptual investigation which has a focus on audience engagement and experience. Thinking of these objects as not just images but multi-layered entities - I have made these investigations to allow viewers to experience my work as ‘poetic pictures.'
These pictures and objects await for people to pensively enter the frame."
