Artist's Statement

Since the mid-nineties, I have been using digital technologies in the aesthetic exploration of our sensorial engagement with the world and with others. What interest me are the capacities of digital technologies to attune our perception with the world that surrounds us, and in particular, their capacities to attune our perception to that which is imperceptible both in nature and artifice. Light and darkness, sound and silence, mass and lightness, and positive and negative space: at the center of it all is that threshold where pure perception becomes the only lens that makes sense of the immensity between inner and outer worlds. In my work as a new media artist, I am fascinated by how this threshold can be manipulated in subtle, sensuous, and yet radical forms that go beyond physical conventions.
