I keep large digital databases of images, illustrations, advertisements, and artworks that come from museum archives, photos that I take, digitized libraries, and social media. These images are old and new, come from the east and west, and are from low and high cultures. I’m interested in how various combinations of images can act as a sort of cryptic language. You can combine symbols from disparate sources to create narratives or drive viewers toward various ideas. This collision of images also speaks to the world that we live in today. Scroll through social media, a newspaper, or a magazine and you will be bombarded with advertising, historical events, news, and memes. These are all happening at once and create visual stimuli that are simultaneously chaotic, beautiful, and alarming. I collect this chaos and combine it in unexpected ways to discuss not only my own life but also to try to make sense of these uncertain times that we are all living in.
