Within my work I examine situations that are present in our everyday life but not perceived consciously.
Small, delicate moments illustrate how I detect the world around me.
Materials are decontextualised from their original use and provided with new different characteristics.
I explore moments in which the intrinsic context is transferred which communicates a gaze, an opinion as well as values, tempers and peculiarities.
My intention is to affect normal visual and perceptual mechanisms far away from their cultural coinages and to create a new ‘space’ that reminds us of how different we perceive things. I’m searching for images and actions which manifest the beauty of now and its simplicity.
