I like to surprise! I like to surprise with things that are already there the whole time, but stayed unnoticed. I want to open up new perspectives, let the spectator, or better the perceiver, over-think his way of interpreting his environment.
I work with spaces and the experience of thus. In the centre of my work I place the perceiver, somebody whose brain interprets the perception according to what it has learned, whose is unique and subjective, but in this alike everybody else. It is about them experiencing their own presence and the presence of others.
I make installations, that are location based, that relate and often thematize a specific space and how it is used by people. I try to work with the relation that exists between the human and the environment. Rather then wanting to create a new world to enter, I try to enter the world of others. I try to foresee how they probably will experience a space, to disrupt these expectations and through this create consciousness. I want to mix up the predefined rules and associations that every space and material comes along with, to combine live images with pre-recorded pictures, chaos with order, squares with circles and presence with absence.
I want to address you personally, but I never want to scream at you, never force you to do anything you don't want. I want to leave space for individuality and create an open, conscious mind, that is aware of its being.
Nothing is total in live, everything is relative and just an interpretation, one truth of many depending on the perspective.
