STATEMENT

Through photography and mixed-media sculpture, I investigate the way identity is constructed and reassembled during socialization. The subject often intertwines with the manipulative nature of the capitalist system.

The combination of digital photography, the softness, mesh-like fabric, and resin creates a novel visual language that not only represents this distorted world but also reflects the downside of specialization and alienation on a personal level.
