ARTISTIC STATEMENT
„I compose media within the grey area of digital and analogue – sounds, performances, installations, exhibitions, videos. In my approach, I reject classifications of art, or genres, as well as the segregation of theory and practice. Besides my emphasis on process, rather than on products, I love to question simple thoughts through a deeply researched concept, but with a low-threshold though.“
