ABOUT

I am a London based artist and researcher whose practice is concerned by technology’s relationship and influence on the human, in particular machine learning and artificial intelligence. Within my practice I utilise various technologies as mediums to produce work, such as 3D scanning/printing, algorithms, code and arguably one of humanity’s greatest technologies: the humble pen and paper. Recent developments in job automation through artificial intelligence and robotics with the threat to ‘steal’ the work of thousands, informs a large part of my research, with my studio practice currently exploring the notion of ‘creativity’. My work observes creativity through various technologies and technological tools to produce art, aiming to question our position on what creativity is and consider the role of the artist.
