Statement

The media I use includes kinetic sculpture, performance, digital collage, and oil painting. In my work, rugs function as both a space to socialize and as a vehicle to create narratives where fantasies unfold. I fabricate rugs using alternative materials, found objects, and inexpensive commodities, and I sample contemporary public signs, slogans, and visual symbols tapping into current official explanations of realities. I aim to make total art where kinetic sculpture is placed at the center while vision, sound, movement, performance, and even smell creates an immersive ambience.
Motivated by social practices, blankets of my digitally produced design are spread out both indoors and outdoors. I invite people to sit, talk, and dine together on the rugs. The central, lively "fire-place" mimics the sound, smell, look, and heat of a real fire. Tapping into the community and comfort of cooking and eating a meal together, I provide basic kitchen facilities such as a grill plate.

My vision for mankind is a global phenomenon, a peaceful transformation which unite all people that I call ‘The United People’ movement. Working from an idea that social interactions lift people’s spirits, I experiment with artificially-made spaces that can inspire communities and create fictional narratives to discuss new social norms.
