"My work stems from my interest in the effects of time on the matter: modification, deterioration and disappearance. Whether the focus is on digital forms or rough materials, large scales of time or microscopic details, the goal of these pieces is to re-adapt existing sonic, visual or physical objects and materials into parallel contexts where their signified meanings, symbols and cultural connections have become residual ghosts; abstractions with loose connections to reality, like distant memories. The possibility of altering the 'real' (or one's perception of it) through the intensity of physical experience lies at the core of how I compose, by working with contrasting scales of activity (from static to frenetic) and focusing on the limits of human perception in regards to duration, frequency and amplitude of both visual and sonic material. I am interested in challenging what we can hear and what we can see in order to develop a personal language combining sound, light, movement, colour, shape, texture and structure."
