   I am my own algorithm

Basically, I understand my artistic work as an irritating interaction that tells of how life transcends its own subjective boundaries.
But my narratives do not have clear plots. Rather, they are fragmented stagings that initially deny the viewer orientation in time and space.

It is important for me to explore the theme of simultaneity of these fragments: Simultaneity of space(spaces) and time(times), of memory and presence, of dream and reality, truth and lie...

"I am my own algorithm" explains the conceptual approach why I work with a wide variety of media and materials.

The digital image in particular allows me to present my narratives (as a tangible, fictional universe) in a visual vocabulary of my own (as aesthetically resilient material).
