Artist Statement (up to date)

Through a playful navigation of the internet, my work explores the dialogue between contemporary society and digital technology. By addressing a growing digital archive of information, I hope to recall familiar encounters with the internet, particularly those that are aleatory and disorientating. I have developed a particular interest in the synthetic, uncanny presence that acts as the host of such encounters, personalising and actualising the conversation between the digital and the physical. This synthetic intelligence, adopting the role of an artificial deity, attempts to offer a security and a reality in an otherwise decentred environment of an immaterial mass of information and data. My work attempts to instance events in which this decentred space, excessive and indulgent, yet also banal and contrived, enters into a dialogue with contemporary anxieties regarding issues of meaning and purpose.
