About me

 

A myth is defined as a complex, widely believed story that is inherently false yet explains phenomena that are inexplicable in nature. My work tries to untangle this paradox by looking into structures that use a mythological system of logic to function. It also strives to input a feminist narrative into the technological methods of creation.
