“Dethroning” is the radical act of being in community and holding empathy for each other. Through being in community, we can work to disengage and “dethrone” systems of oppression and power.

In vetro / In vivo - Trial #1:
“Trial 1” navigates the delicate balance between agency and absence, as even in moments of unconscious inaction, our essence is woven into unfolding realms. It muses on the unseen forces that sway us between control and compliance, inviting reflection on our ephemeral entanglement with these vast, intangible domains.

In vivo / In vetro - Trial #2:
In “Trial 2” communal engagement and surveillance grow a embryonic cell culture as a medium of collective evolution. This trial explores the juxtaposition of surveillance and extraction, inviting outrospection on the state of being controlled as well as influencing the system, endeavoring to capture our ambiguous relationship with collective change.


My current area of interests is developing well designed data visualizations that are unique, informative, useful and engaging. Additionally I’m focused on combining data visualization and generative art practices to create generative art/visualizations, and then useing various production methods to make physical representations of the generated works.
