Artist Statement

I am constantly exploring the different ways that sound can be interpreted and represented visually. My work is centered around the relationship between sound and its graphical/visual representations, which is an ongoing process. I also use the concept of transmediation to further explore ideas related to sound. Through experimentation with various materials, I aim to capture the emotional, physical, spiritual, and psychological impact of living in our world. My work is influenced by my personal identity, interests, and reflections on social commentary, which are concealed within my musical notations developed since my youth.
