Artist’s Statement
Everything starts with space, and its circumstances. The process of appropriating space, the manipulation of what exists. What can be said about the world, and how can its sheer diversity be gathered? It seems that any attempt to capture this infinite vastness, to translate the existing evidence, is a futile exercise. But precisely in this inconclusiveness, in the always imperfect translation, a broad field opens up. This field is what I try to investigate: the communication between space, objects, and their functions. The observation of the relationship of, and contradiction between, technology and nature. I follow the anxiety between the parts, the noise and the silence, the self-oscillation of opposites and contexts. The field of simulation.
