I am a research based artist interrogating our relationship to the future. Specifically, how do the stories we tell ourselves about the future, shape how we live together in the present? Using contemporary technology such as 3D animation software, 3D printing, game engines, virtual reality and artificial intelligence—tools that companies and nation states promise will instantiate a better world— I create objects and experiences that tamper with the omnipresent techno-optimism of the present.
