I consider myself inspired by contemporary technology while maintaining the belief that the newest technology isn’t necessarily a requirement. I’m driven by a fascination with technology and by the desire to convey meaning through it. The artworks I make are a combination of ludic critique of technological intervention, participatory experience and current and future issues. My design work focuses on the web and technology in general as mediums for identity, information and innovative communication projects in the creative industry.
