As a new media artist, I focus on combining mythology and technology to address scientific and philosophical questions. Each work I create contributes to the development of my personal mythology, which revolves around time, creation, and transformation.
My art explores the relationship between the past, present, and future, examining how we can use our past and mythologies to orient ourselves toward the future and shape it. Additionally, I aim to understand the impact of technology on our perception of time and reality.
With each work I create, I build on my personal mythology, resulting in a complex and multidimensional story. Time, creation, and transformation play a key role in this story. My artworks often contain elements of interactivity and digital media, blurring the boundaries of time and space and inviting the viewer to participate in a transformative experience.
I am fascinated by the possibilities that technology offers for creating new stories and reinterpreting myths. By combining these with scientific and philosophical questions, I hope to prompt people to reflect on the human experience and our understanding of the world around us.
My artworks invite contemplation, introspection, and dialogue. By building my personal mythology through each work I create, I aim to contribute to the development of a shared mythology that can inspire and connect us all.
