about

My work as an visual artist focuses on phenomena, trends and developments that are connected with the digitalization of our society.

The usage of different medias such as cellphones, computers, Apps and other devices e.g. navigation aids result in datasets. This is the initial source of my inspiration in creating self-contained realities. Sculptures, objects, installations and graphics are the result of a further development process based on the obtained data.
During the creative process I analyze the elements of the picture of the data mapping and start to alienate, fragment, recombine and rescale them.
By means of self-determined rules I transfer the information into particular spaces of imagination. This results in autonomous shapes and figures, always referring to the here and now.
My interests in creative processes of finding shapes and forms are focused on linear forms, geometric structures as well as basic materials. Often I end up using industrial prefabricated materials.
Furthermore I play and experiment with the visibility of toolmarks that refer to manual processing. From my artistic point of view these traces of craftsmanship are haptic responses to the supposed precision of the immaterial, digital world.
