Artist statement

As an artist, my fascination lies in psychogeographical mapping, unraveling hidden layers of meaning and emotion within the urban landscape.

I delve into the intricate connections between individuals and their surroundings, exploring how our environment molds our perceptions and shapes our experiences.

My creative process involves immersive walks through diverse neighborhoods, where keen observations manifest into drawings, photos, and various mediums. Through these fragmented cartographies, I aim to unveil the complex undercurrents of our intimate and collective interactions within these spaces.

Extending beyond human experiences, my coded algorithms incorporate geographic and collective data, weaving connections with the nonhuman world—objects, plants, trees, and animals. This unveils unconscious interconnections, constructing a broader mental architecture of ourselves.

My primary focus is on the transformative potential of psychogeographical mapping, envisioning living spaces as hubs of creative potential. By reimagining our relationship with the environment, we can explore new possibilities and innovative ways of engaging with the world.

Through my art, I aspire to contribute to this ongoing exploration, encouraging others to delve into the psychogeographical dimensions of their environment. We can uncover fresh perspectives together, fostering a collective journey toward creative transformation.
