Artist Statement

I am interested in the cultural, biographical and neurological patterns and laws by which we perceive and interpret the world. In my work I display them and question whether and how far we are bound to those parameters. I develop symbolic image sequences and installations extracting these structures.

My video works are constructed and deliberately artificial image sequences between digital painting and video. They are not conform to the cinematic viewing habits. They change slowly, often completely without zoom and cut. In my installations the viewer is interactively involved by a curiosity-inspiring surface between fiction and reality.
