Artist statement

Never Learned to Draw ¯(º_o)/¯" (2023) integrates labor, AI, and digital culture to reflect on the role of automation in contemporary artistic production. The installation operates autonomously, using image data sourced from the internet to generate digital drawings to be transcribed onto an exercise book. The work is part of the ongoing process to automate reality until we reach singularity. @jjjrrrrddddd
