I am a photographic artist focusing on the philosophical aspects of contemporary visual culture. My work explores machine vision and the ways in which it is constructed by the many forms of electronic eyes that scrutinize people’s lives. By investigating the history of imagery generated by technology, I examine the contemporary power dynamic between machines and human bodies that underlies the tension between a digitally managed society and the embodied and vulnerable individual self. By creating a visual language that is performative and sculptural, my work expands the spectrum of machine vision and the human body.
