In my works, I am examining connections and thoughts about the visible, the hidden, the ‎conscious, and the subconscious. I do this through installations, analog photography, video, ‎mapping, and performance. In the creation process, I explore the viewer's optical ‎illusions, thinking about the gap between what ‎exists and what the viewer experiences, ‎between matter and its absence.‎

I investigate the issue of time and the duration of actions through a construction of mechanisms that produce a repetitive movement. I use electronic sensors of various ‎types such as sound, distance, light, and motion sensors that are usually operated with ‎Arduino to highlight the ‎repetitiveness. Through the sensors, I am emphasizing the viewer's presence, making it ‎an essential part of the work. The gap between what the viewer sees and what happens in space helps me explore questions on identity and existence.
