I am researching the (de)construction of memory through computer programming, working with the inherent instability and flaws of digital imaging. Through experimental manipulation, I seek to open up new, poetic readings of the image. Interested in experiencing the present moment and materialise the way memories affect what we see, I create installations where the viewer becomes a conditional agent of the artwork. I have developed an algorithmic code to create unique and unrepeatable real-time experiences: the artwork and the viewer are entailed in an unending exchange, doing and undoing, unfolding a realm of infinite and random possibilities.
In my work, time reveals itself in two-way layers rather than chronologically. To me, rocks have this characteristic, they act as palimpsests: a surface that rises to the surface. I made rocks with photographs printed on paper and used photogrammetry as a tool for experimentation. Photogrammetry is a methodology for archiving that 3D scans physical objects by taking photographs. Instead of being interested in the final image, I focused on the process of this technology. I challenged the limits of this methodology using translucent and reflective objects such as mirrors, to highlight the elements of chance and mistake. The images were used to create interactive and generative photographs: photographs that have an autonomous life, which is activated by the presence of the viewer.
