There are three main elements that characterizes my work.
Firstly I like to have a bird’s eye view. This influences my choice of concepts and the time span of projects, I enjoy working in bigger and longer series.
The second key element is transformation, I seek to transform subject, material, medium or perception.
The third important characteristic for my work is repetition, I often express transformation through repetition. The impact and visual quality that repetition gives both on small and large scale interests me, as is also evident in many of my works.
One of the mediums I enjoy is photography and time-based media. Through photography/video I become a transformer and the camera is my frame. The process of abstraction fascinates me, by removing the context, I automatically remove the evaluation or judgement that I as human automatically place on my surroundings. By removing the possibility to place the subject into a context I am giving it a new life, possibilities and identity, that way I can change something perceived as ‘ugly’, ‘mundane’, ‘undesirable’ or ‘annoying’ into something beautiful, interesting, curious and irritatingly intangible.
A photograph by nature is very definite and our minds automatically define the medium, the confusion that abstraction creates interests me.
Art is a way for me to make sense of my surroundings and the world, and an opportunity to transform my reality.
