Artist Statement

I introduce the concept of "social glitch", which describes the deviation from the established traditions and stereotypes in society. Just as glitch-art is opposed to the ideal representation of an image in digital culture, so “social glitch” is considered a bug, a glitch due to a discrepancy with what is expected. This distortion of the transmission of the ideal image, turned into art, speaks of the freedom to decide what one's own life should be. In my works, anthropomorphic entities interact with the ornament, which I present as a visual projection of society. The dissolution of characters in a curious pattern symbolizes the perception of prejudices.
