Statement

My work has a lofty, but important message — a manifesto — that calls for social progress, ingenuity, efficiency, organization, cooperation, civic responsibility, regard and understanding of history, and a deeper appreciation for nature and the environment. I base my work on concepts about technology, science, engineering, and urban planning from the past, present, and future. My hope is to motivate viewers to think about how to move forward as one species, and remind them that through curiosity, ambition, a sense of oneness, and a healthy dose of competition, history has and will be made.

My latest work is an ongoing multimedia, interdisciplinary collaborative project that challenges machismo and patriarchy, and favors femininity, beauty, and sensibility, called Next Human Project (nexthumanproject.com). Meant as a movement that renders a futuristic utopia and illustrates a complex representation of human idealism with the Next Us — or the future evolutionary metamorphosis of human beings — for it is an effective way to frame “how we should and shouldn't be.” I support and reference all extrapolations with scientific research, technological breakthroughs, and important ideas.
