In my artistic practice I integrate sculpture, installation, performance and video art by using contemporary technology to comment on interrelationship of people as social beings, the environments in which they are located and their relationship to art. My newest work seeks to encourage reflection on what it means to live in a world filled with new technology and cite the understanding of the inseparability of man as a natural being and nature of technological progress.
