Bazooka is a digital construction resulting from a merging of my performance, sculptural and photographic practices. The sculpture used is from my "Phantom Prosthetic” project bellow with a focus on the Bazooka weapon on which I sit. Reaching for the absurdity through the simple gesture of eating in such a charged environment, this work touches upon the individual by using my own body as well as an innovative weapon specifically designed for infantry combat, for one on one action. “Bazooka” speaks to an imaginary future where the mental injuries of the past still actively are consuming one with an ironic and illogical sense of sweetness in the present.
Bazooka, 2017: Part of "Phantom Prosthetic” project

Risk Management is a video installation addressing the modification and effects of objects on the human psyche and body. The inspiration is the story of an unending war, where missing body parts and their replacements are a metonymy for a prosthetic of the human psyche, Where managing the physiological effects of that state of mind is in essence an impossibility. The sound track is the artist "playing" (as a musical instrument) her sculpture featured in this video called "Phantom Prosthetic".
