statement

As an artist I am interested in data (internet), automation (algorithms, artifical intelligence, distributed computing), the nature of randomness and how memory is represented in a world that is radically unmanageable.

In my artistic practice I develop methods where decision making is partly automated. I am interested in the question: which decisions should be left to the computer and which decisions should be left to the artist ? Because I work with huge sets of data and therefore a lot of decisions, the progress and the process get blurred. I find myself lost in decisions, giving away control, and being in a state of active remembrance and emotional alertness.
