The author

Art is the language I speak and the bible I swear by. My lifelong creative education ranges a beautiful repository of art, music, movement, science, philosophy and youth work. My existence till now has been distilled with insights from my brother’s interest in artificial intelligence and accompanied by the admiration I have for my intellectually intimidating sister. Drawing was used by my mother to help me learn and silence me when I was a nuisance. Thankfully, my father snuck business into all conversations about art, for survival purposes.

Like other millennials, I watched the internet enter it’s adolescence and anonymously sought thrills from fascinating and disturbing chatrooms. I listen to science podcasts and pay attention at futurist talks. Empathy, mental health, social action and being a good ally play a huge role in my projects. As you read this, I’m planning an exhibition exploring how technology has changed the human workforce as a result, impacted our psychological state.

Project details

Overview

My father photographed family situations; us as children, birthdays, the garden, his wife. Sometimes he’d give the camera to my mother, whose glasses have always been extremely thick. I remember one photograph my mother took of my older brother when he was a small todler. He was playing in long yellow grass, running towards her. The grass was perfectly in focus, and my brother was a ghostly blur.

I’ve always interpreted bluring, morphing, drawing over and augmenting people’s faces as the changing of mental stability.
