Artist Statement

As an animator, I think the world in motion leaves behind only a blur of what it once was. Art interests me as a certain type of paleontology. In an art historical context, artworks are not mere illustrations of a period. They further our understanding by exploring human experience that would otherwise be intangible. As my practice began diversifying into drawing, print and film I began seeing my work as an investigating procedure. My work consists of collecting pieces of human interaction, documenting and intervening social and political motion as interpreted by the subjective workings of the mind.

The animation practice developed into a lifelong passion for movement and transformation. My personal experiences of violence and civil unrest in my home country engaged my interest in unveiling the forces behind the changing structures of contemporary society.
