CURATORIAL APPROACH
I’ve always been interested in artistic mediums since studying art. This interest progressively brought me to the relationship between art and science. Having spent years tracking artworks in the digital community to write articles and books, I finally decided to focus on digital in contemporary art. Technology, including the Internet, shapes our relationships with the world, others and one’s self. Therefore, studying creations that emerge from their practices or uses allows us to examine most issues in our contemporary society. Gathering such artworks to create a dialogue in exhibitions leads to documenting our time by giving some possible interpretations.
