  What are you trying to communicate with your work? With my work I make observations about the time, the society, and the world I live in. I want to raise questions about some aspects and dynamics. I’m interested in the paradoxes and dichotomies of modern living and the effects of mass media and consumer culture on identity. I am interested in what is an image today, in decoding the signs of the visual landscape and creating new associations to better understand the disorienting time... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? My ideas come from my interests in the urban, built environment. As I lived and traveled in different cities in China and the United States, I witnessed the continuous reshaping and renovation of these globalized urban landscapes. The elements of these constructed areas sometimes appear misplaced—ambiguous functions or anachronistic intentions emerge. As a result, the qualities of uncertainty, deficiency, inaccessibility, and... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? If I have to point out something in particular and put it in words (which I find extremely difficult as I cannot grasp a clear and determined intention throughout my work), I would say that I do my best to share with others this strange and particular feeling I face towards my own perception of time: how it relates to our memories and our own history, how it relates to and pins down our lives. I try to reveal a sort of strange and... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? It depends on the project I am working on. My work is both figurative and abstract, but above all conceptual. I always work from a theme that appeals to me and will allow me to deepen my research through the creative process. I am interested in the poetic expression that evolves through the theme and the conceptual aspect of the project. What I try to communicate is expressed through the idea, the purpose, as well as the color,... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? Inspired by the work of Brion Gysin, Dan Graham, Genesis P-Orridge, my work proposes a meta-religion based on two main things: rock & roll and mysticism. Functioning like a secret order that emphasizes the spiritual attributes of musical movements like the blues, rasta, Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth (TOPY), Texan sixties psychedelic rock, or German krautrock, I try to propose a new iconography based on the music and musicians...

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? There is no judgment in my work, no denunciation. My field of play is a country where the landscape is shaped by and for people on the move. Without a second thought, this world is going through a perpetual mutation, which sees a new city rising, another one dying, leaving them laid out indistinctly one next to the other. This visual chaos is my source of inspiration. What I want to share and convey is a kind of bliss, calm,... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I consider my work political, but I prefer the subtle process of reflection over the shoveling of an opinion down a viewer's throat. That's probably because I don't think art is a political or emancipatory force—rather, it is what Fredric Jameson labeled “just another ‘pop’ in an all-pervasive pop-culture.” Thus, I’m not interested in examining or establishing perceived truths; instead, I’m interested in exploring the Absurd—the...

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I make wall-based geometric abstractions by inventing systems for visualizing values of numbers, specifically of sequences from the infinite numbers pi and e, by utilizing grids and repetition of simple geometric shapes. Numbers are the direct source of abstraction. The majority of my past works are wall-based, geometric, crocheted fiberglass constructions. In 1996, when these things began, they were based on identity... [more]
