The subjects of my works are not usually humans, or still life, but rather algorithms, these pieces of codes that are part of our apps, and our tools in the digital world... And I'm trying to play with them, find their blind spots, find the weaknesses, find the ways in which they break down, and find even the damage that they do to our society or our personal lives.
