My practice criticizes the dominant discourse that is filtered through constant interaction between humans, social media and the Internet. I point digital tools as a set of anxiety-inducing mechanisms. I challenge the complex relationship between the face, the body and personal technology. I wonder how the “I” and its performative identities are formed. The basis of my work is photography, I use different alternative and analog processes and intertwine them with ideas from this post-photographic moment. Sometimes I use my body as a research entity, I am the digital Self.
The object-oriented ontology coined by Graham Harman is the axis of artistic speculation from which my ideas relate to the separation of the object with human meaning and the Selfie as an entity of its own importance.
