Neon Lights Flicker Except In Galleries

My technique stems from interests in engraving, sound visualization, representations of data and the emergence of old and new technologies. Inevitably, there is a point of view, and due to my investigations with these mediums I try to offer new propositions. In the video work Neon Lights Flicker, Except in Galleries I used this method to compose an environment in which industrialization opposes artistic freedom. The video offers a contemplative atmosphere to question a dystopian scene where the artist is absent, yet the work remains and the message lives beyond.

I start all my projects by sketching in graphite and ink. For me, drawing is a way of thinking, a way to build a project’s final concept, thus sketching helps me plan for a larger more ambitious project. Overall my practice involves extensive research and planning prior to embarking on the main work. This research accompanies my production process and influences my problem-solving as part of a creative endeavour. That being said the act of making has always been the most solidifying method of thinking for me. My technique stems from an interests in engraving, sound visualization, representations of data and the emergence of old and new technology.
