For the past three years, I have been working on My Land, a project in which I give myself absolute autonomy to create a world according to my own rules. This long-term project contains drawings and sculptures that represent maps and artifacts of an imagined territory, which exists outside our perception of time and does not correspond to any known culture. The territory has its own systems of logic, language, and measurement that function only within themselves. I consider the project a thought experiment concerning a foreign universe in which the viewer must completely abandon her own personal experience to adapt to the arbitrary systems.
