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.
With analogue and digital audio editing as a starting point, I started combining material from my dads 8 mm film camera with experimental video editing. This meant merely adding a visual layer to the creative process I was already immersed in.
As I became increasingly interested in movement and physicality, 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. Thus, the rhythmical narration of moving image became a performative biography of landscapes and relations, realities and fictions.
