Keramikk og elektronisk kunst

Artist statement

My current research leads me to the making of active objects undergoing an evolution which conducts to self destruction. With accumulation of rough geometric forms mixed with ceramics and electronics, the interactive and still ecological installations created reflect on the figure of human activities as the dominant influence on nowadays ecosystems.This project attempts to narrate the catastrophe and use the visitor presence as a trigger. It refers to a post-humanism era that shows that our way of apprehending our body is changing with new technologies and is closely intertwined within the problematics related to the notion of collapsology and solstalgia. These two neologisms reveal first, the study and elaboration of how industrial civilization will collapse and what will replace it and secondly, the emotional disquiet about negative changes in one’s environment.
