AMEMA’s practice explores the impact of emerging technologies on the political, social, and religious landscapes of society. Her work delves into the complex interplay between technology’s potential for empowerment and the risks of disenfranchisement, probing the delicate balance between technological innovation and its ethical implications. AMEMA seeks to spark a dialogue on the necessity of aligning technological advances with human values, ensuring they serve as tools for positive transformation rather than instruments of division.

Technological progress, in many ways, reflects a society’s collective ambitions, fears, and moral dilemmas. AMEMA’s art invites viewers to reflect critically on this relationship, asking how technology is shaping society. She accomplishes this through a variety of mediums, including painting, drawing, printmaking, lenticulars, projection mapping, and other sculptural elements. Through these diverse forms, she urges viewers to take mindful consideration of how technology’s power can be harnessed to foster a more equitable, just, and connected world. Her work acts as a conduit for discussion, encouraging an introspective look at our collective technological journey and its potential to unite or divide.

We live amidst unprecedented social, economic, and political upheaval, with many fearing that we have lost sight of our shared humanity. Despite the promise of greater interconnectivity and interdependence brought about by age-defining technological advancements, we seem to have become more isolated. Yet, it is in these moments of profound challenge that the opportunity for reflection and redirection emerges, urging us to rebuild the foundations of our society on the pillars of compassion, solidarity, and mutual respect.

As we navigate this complex landscape, it becomes imperative that we reaffirm our commitment to empathy, understanding, and cooperation.

Recognizing the dual-edged nature of technology, we must harness its capacity for good, leveraging it as a tool for fostering genuine connections and bridging divides. In an era where technology is deeply intertwined in our lives, I contemplate its potential to accelerate positive transformation, urging us to reimagine its application to amplify voices that yearn for unity and to construct platforms that celebrate our shared humanity.

Reflecting on my diverse experiences across the globe, I’ve come to recognize the shared commonalities that bind us together as a global community. This understanding evokes a desire that we transcend divisive barriers and embrace our collective identity as “One.” It is this desire for peace and harmony that drives my work - to depict the beauty and potential of a world united in love, solidarity, and understanding. Through this lens, I create in my works a future where our differences are not just tolerated but celebrated, creating a mosaic of cultures that enriches our collective experience on this planet.
