I am currently exploring the realm of transhumanism as my core subject using various illustrative, graphic and sensory means of communication. I try to visualize an abstracted reality of the future and question the significance of technology in our lives.
My recent work explores the idea of transhumanism in which I try to manifest the interconnectedness of man and machine biology in an abstract manner using various illustrative methods. My obsession for human anatomy and machines became the driving force for my explorations. This conquest in a never ending pursuit that tries to predict the future of human biology.
I envisions myself as a futurist and want to delve deeper into the realm of man-machine symbiosis with a glimpse into the future that ultimately supports the betterment of mankind as a species.
