Through my work I try to explore different phenomena that occur in and through social media. Both in the sense of the language production of images and of its way of consumption. I like the idea that through repetition and duplication it is possible to rethink the ways in which objects gets shaped ontologically. Or, how certain types of aesthetic languages and even certain objects become fetishes that define social groups within pop culture. How its presentation in a value driven system via likes and reblogs, create a specific setting for the work.
The actual depiction of objects in real life hold a different value than when shared in the internet as a 3d sculpture. I like to use these schemes to create 3d object installations and watch their symbolic value shift and reshape by reseeding it back to the social media.
