My work explores a narrative inspired by future possibilities in humanity's mental and social evolution. I often wonder where our ever-expanding dependence and assimilation with technology may lead us, and why it seems to be such an inevitable driving force in reshaping the way we think and communicate. I'm interested in technology because it is a fundamental force that allows us to overcome the natural path of evolution, and steer our destiny wherever our imagination takes us. In a sense, it is the physical manifestation of our thoughts and ideas.
The dawn of technology is the realization that, instead of adapting to our environment, we can change our environment and adapt it to us. It seems as though one of the core pursuits of human beings is to live in a world we have created. We manipulate our environment more than any other known life form. We conform the world to suit our needs, our ideals, and our insatiable curiosity. We yearn to revel in the ocean of our dreams. The only constraints to fully manifesting our imagination are the limitations of the physical world. My work explores a world where humanity has reached a turning point in evolution, where the physical world is simply bypassed and our minds are fully submerged in the synthesized reality we have been subconsciously constructing.
