Merdjan makes two-dimensional works that question the effects of technology and social media on people’s inner life. The mixing of fine art and craft techniques, without the total rejection of digital technology, invites the viewer to repossess his or her interiority. These multilayered works present the environments and spaces of daily existence, and their themes speak to being present and mindful. Their mixed-media process underscores the value of using one’s hands. By folding digital technology back into traditional methods, these works restore everydayness and materiality to our disembodied subjectivity.
