-------------------------------

My work is based on multidisciplinary research in the fields of art, technology and cognition.
It seeks to investigate human perception in relations with phenomenology of senses and possibilities of cognition.
I am particularly interested in borders between comprehensible and incomprehensible experience and how it can affects conception of one's reality.
