Statement

My main interest lies in the observation of different concepts concerning the exploration and interconnection of our world.
With the image of physical traveling as a starting point, including adventurous expeditions with rockets, zeppelins, donkeys and flying chairs. I also research on the techniques of transmitting information (like radio, television and internet).
I am fascinated by the idea of the unknown. My work focuses on the ways and techniques, people developed to widen geographical and intellectual boarders.

The material I use most are blankets. It is a intriguing and polyvalent material with contradictionary qualities. Blankets protect and give warmth. they suggest comfort but can also be experienced as oppressive, irritating and often a fire hazard.
The blankets I use are mainly second-hand. This gives an extra layer to the application of this material.
