An integral part of my artistic work is a mode of practice coined by experimental strategies and a conceptual approach. Art as a medium of communication and the examination of the impact of digitalisation on cultural production, coverage and reception form the thematic basis of my work. The concepts are implemented in the form of installation, intervention, video, audio, photography and graphics, however, the moving image often takes on a central role. Questions dealing with the role of language in the current context of digital communication and the relationship between the body and its technologically-mediated environment are reflected in the substantive approach of my work.
