Artist statement

For me, all things are connected: from atom level to larger societal structures. I am fascinated by the fact that that even small interventions can change something to form new, sustainable support systems.

Most, if not all, of my practice derive from rhythms and systems. It depends on the context how I engage with those systems, from preserving to initiating, intervening, supporting, negotiating, hacking, questioning, etc. The closest I may come is to say that my practice is trans-disciplinary and exists on the intersection of sound/music, DIY-engineering, research, biohacking, activism and more. It formulate into an installation, video, audio, gig, happening, events, or anything.

As an artist, I always consider how I can function within my surrounding realities. It also made it easier for me to move between systems, therefore I am afforded with the chance to choose what, when and how I contribute. The question is always: How can I put that luxury to use? The broader question is how to best engage with systems? I would like to be able to look at things up close and from afar, from the personal and micropolitics to the universal language of art (if such a thing exists).
