Artist Statement
In my photography and video installations I am looking for the – almost uncanny – moment when the virtual space subtly merges with the physical space. I try to analyze and uncover proportions, dimension, relation and perception of body and room, but also imitation and memory. Unlike in conventional photography, I often make use of 3D programs to create my sujets. That allows me to create images that can not be found or might be hidden beneath the surface of our reality. It also gives me the possibilty to build interior, light and perspective myself, which can be compared to painting, stage design or architecture. In order to reduce the artificial aesthetic and to add a rather emotional layer, I use digital manipulation as well as analogue enlargement techniques.
