Complexity is always at the core of my practice. Within cases of geopolitical conflict, I explore order, aesthetics, and narrative patterns and propose new forms of framing complexity. I seek a way to explain complexity through the logic of complexity. In one of my artworks, Conflict Atlas, I shift the center of the earth to the Falkland Islands to view the global conflict from the archipelago’s perspective. Just as I question narratives of conflict, I also question what an artist is and what the artwork can be. I often concede autonomy by working in multiple collaborative constructions. My artworks often are accessible online or made by using existing structures of the internet.
