Video work

Born in 1979, I belong to a generation which (at least in most wealthy Western/European countries) grew up with an abundance of home video cameras. The democratization of hard- and software video equipment during the decades between 1970 and 1990 were the precursor to the online and interactive, video-based hyperrealities characteristic for most consumer cultures in the third millennium.

Already engaged in experimenting with electronic music, I started experimenting with editing film from my fathers 8mm camera, 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.
