Practice:
Hello, I work with video, sound, light, bioluminescence, invertebrates and post-consumer waste.I create stories, metaphors and menacing tableaus with dystopian spiritual undertones.I use light as a form of painting, space as an extension to the canvas, video as a polymorphic visual tool and the mechanical lens as my surrogate eyes.My work aims to facilitate a hypothetical conversation between man and nature by looking at phenomena intertwine with science, myths, and technology. My practice is a form of deliberate mindful looking through time-lapse, the microscopic lens and invisible wavelengths of light. In this process, I find ways to communicate our disconnection with our ecosystem and to critique the status quo. It confronts the peril of how we set ourselves apart from nature as if it is different from us. Recent developments include exploring the social roles of Art, Science together with NFT.For Ocean Day, I collaborated with SNARK ART and Seed World Foundation in Hawaii to highlight the Microplastic crisis. Donating 50% of proceeds for Beach Cleanups. To see more works for please visit SNARK ART: https://drops.snark.art/iyvone-khoo-cawa
