The question of whether or not we are alone in the universe, has been sparking people's imagination for centuries. That spark is the material of my practice, as I direct the searchlight back towards the keepers of information and the curious observers.
while I am less interested in solving the riddle of existence, (though it would be undoubtedly fascinating), I choose to investigate the mysterious workings of the imagination and how, under the right conditions or contexts, it can produce UFO sightings out of ambiguous visual phenomena; fictional landscapes, or strange alien technology out of bland rock formations. I explore the associative implications of assembling fractured meanings as a way of coping with the unknown.
In this recently coined “post-truth” era, it is more evident that the truth is only secondary in significance to our ability to mold it to our vantage, and so I dare ask: What is the fragmented narrative and is it possible to plot its course?
