The Disappearing- It’s raining; will the rain ever stop?

I navigate the complexities of our world with a growing sense of helplessness. The more I uncover, the more I feel the intangible forces of society challenging my insights. To me, it’s like being swept along by an invisible current, my path unpredictable and uncontrollable. This turbulent journey threatens the peace I cherish, leaving it fragile, easily disrupted by life’s sudden shifts. Such moments not only bring lingering regret for what’s been lost but also a deep uncertainty about what lies ahead. Yet, in this vulnerability, I find a shared human experience. I recognize that my struggle with powerlessness connects me to others. This commonality becomes a foundation for collective strength and potential change.

I mainly use lens-based media with analog techniques, through which I merge documentary techniques with storytelling. This combination allows me to express my critical thoughts and reflections on the rapidly changing world. My work is a thoughtful response to the complexities of our lives, blending personal insights with broader social commentary. Drawing from my international background and interdisciplinary training, I am leveraging the power of art as a tool for reasoning.
