Some people worry that artificial intelligence will make us feel inferior, but then, anybody in his right mind should have an inferiority complex every time he looks at a flower
― Alan Kay

My work is mainly focusing on the relationship of a human agency to a non human machinery or web algorithms as a virtual landscape which can be changed only by a human or artificial intelligence. The works are mostly searching after the fine line of virtuality vs augmented reality being offered in social medias and the desire to visualize everyday situations that happen in reality but receive other faces when translating them to the Internet. Time and place disappear and the viewer is actually in a different dimension with his own rules (or sometimes without rules at all, which is actually a rule in itself). Some of my works depend on the viewer, they require a certain action, without this particular action the work has a different dimension.

He’s focusing on the differences of a human agency to a non human machinery or web algorithms as a code for a virtual relationship which can be affected directly by humans or artificial intelligence models.
