Science-fiction is a theme in some of your work, is that part of what drives your attraction to digital media in your art practice and how the internet connected you to virtual queer life?


Not quite. I've always loved horror, science fiction, and fantasy stories in both literature and film. I think what I  felt, but couldn't articulate properly as a teenager, is that I found belonging and catharsis through these character archetypes that moved me so deeply. Through their magic, supernatural abilities, or embracing parts of the in/human experience that we shy away from but nevertheless cannot escape. Why do so many geeky goth queers love this kind of media? Because most of us have been made to feel like freaks or monsters all of our lives by the society we find ourselves in.
