Description

My practice concentrates mainly on the role of the body within a new technological terrain, trying to understand it's historical image and finding a way into the future. Technology is traditionally seen as a means to an end, I see it more as a ethnology of human activity. I try to fuse these two characterisation together. I work with found objects for which I find a new meaning and function. Objects become reconfigured, searching for a new purpose. Mutation of ideas and forms is central my practice especially in regard to the notion of the post-human and to its description of a human identity which is caught between the idea that the self and becoming 'other' than itself, and the image of that self which is being mediated by the very technology that determines it. The post-human body is therefore a body authored by its technologies, which is also retelling and reconfiguring what it means to be human. Immersing myself in research on the modern and classic definitions of the identity, current sociological theory and post human theory, I try and find synthesis through experimentation.
