Video work

Born in 1979, I belong to a generation which – at least in wealthy Western/European countries – grew up with an abundance of home video cameras. The democratization of hardware equipment and software during the decades 80s/90s were the precursor to the online and interactive, video-based hyperrealities characteristic for most consumer cultures in this millennium.
Starting off with analogue and digital audio editing, I later started experimenting with my fathers 8 mm film camera as well as video editing. This meant merely adding a visual layer to the creative process I was already immersed in.
Captured motion became a way for me to recompose myself in time, space and sound, an artistic pursuit which led me to and working with both on and off-screen choreography. The rhythmicality and story of the moving image became a performative biography of travels, landscapes and relations, realities and fictions.
