Alexander Si (he/him)

My multidisciplinary practice maps out how the human condition, both physically and psychologically, has warped in the post-internet context. Each project is a case study on an extreme psychological situation — the fetishes and phobias conditioned by the contemporary audience’s sadomasochistic relationship with media technology. I dissects the power dynamics between the players, then restage/reconstruct my findings into scenarios different from the usual modes of interaction. The unease in the experience challenges the source and validity of our pains and pleasures, and sheds light on the long-term effects these platforms and devices have on the user’s mental health and their sense of identity.
