'Exploring the creation of eulogies and the tension between oral histories and digital archives.
With particular reference to Western burial techniques, it investigates how this capitalist burial market contributes to human conditioning, dehumanizes death, causes the manifestation of anxiety and scars our neuroendocrinological functioning by shaping our symbiotic lived experiences.
Influenced by socioeconomincal failings to provide inclusive agency , the artist is interested in the myths of debt and its power to keep a soul from being released or transcended and what this means in a digital age where agency is taken away from our personal information and digital mourning, digital ghosts and virtual embalming are becoming embedded within our understanding of grief and remembrance.
Through installations & participatory performative acts, the artist investigates a reclaiming of tactility and intimacy when approaching our burial culture.
