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 mainly create my sujets in 3D programs. 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 freedom to build interior, light and perspective myself, which can be comparable to stage design, architecture or painting.
In order to brake the artificiality and to give the images a rather timeless character, I use aesthetic of low resolution, blur and grain. Therefor I take pictures or videos of the digital environment, manipulate them with digital programs or even use analogue enlargement technique.
