My graphic and digital art projects employ various media, including, and often combining, photography, video, animation, gifs, memes, 2D and 3D computer graphics. This practice has been informed by an engagement with viral artefacts of diverse cultures and contemporary art concepts.
Digital technologies have the capacity to combine and juxtapose disparate cultural phenomena and can create a symbiosis between popular digital artefacts and the aesthetic criteria of the high-art world.
I use viral and humorous social media content as a contemporary, interdisciplinary medium to explore social and ideological themes. I wish to make poetic, philosophical and political statements using a cultural practice distinguished by its crudeness and directness. Current communication technologies used in an art context can create a fragmented storytelling method with the power to disclose contemporary moral values.
