installatie - sculptuur - objecten - collage - digitale technologie
My art practice involves material and processual research, which results in sculptures, installations and wall based objects. They often involve found images and ready-mades, that already carry meanings and associations from their use in the real world. Through manipulation and deformation of them, I create visual metaphors which activate my view on present-day society. We are immersed between synthetic and organic environments, heavily technologized processes, planned obsolescence and exploitation of vulnerabilities of the human psyche. I manipulate images in collaboration with pre-existing algorithms, which can be updated at any time. I use synthetic polymers allowing them to interfere with gravity, and I use light in the objects to attract attention. Collaboration with algorithms results in pixel porridge, among which some figurative elements stay grotesquely recognizable. Found lamps experience their second life with added elements and in resin encapsulated light bulbs. I'm interested in controlled flows and frozen gesture.
