Introduction
I am an interdisciplinary artist and ritual designer working with performance, photography, painting, sound, installations, and film. My main concern is the exploration of the loss of boundaries between human beings and technology in the 21st Century, the emerging phenomenon of transhumanism in the digital age and the evolutionary origins of fear politics. My methodology is the creation of an alter ego, a mythical character, a contemporary manifestation of transhumanism which embodies the symbiotic relationship between the human experience and technology. Through these alter egos I can explore this fatalistic relationship in which human beings are losing their spirituality and seek methods of analogue, and digital therapeutic re-spiritualization through contemporary art.
