We are in a period of frantic techno-social transformation. Algorithmic mediation of virtual and phenomenal experience is a defining feature of the contemporary moment. Filter bubbles produce sectarian social groups, which although comforting to participants, utterly fail at building consensus beyond their borders. Contributing to discursive development through contemplative confrontation is paramount. I create objects, experiences and coalitions that explore distortion in techno-mediated relationships and the shifting landscape of authenticity and power in the digital age.
