In my artistic process i connect my experiences of virtual and analogue approaches and i work with the complicated relationship between logic and emotion. I am interested in borders and constrains, the idea of open space and the in between gray-zones. Therefor i deal with cognitive and physical structures, generative systems, resonance, feedback and noise.


Since i am able to hold a pencil i draw. Soon i enjoyed the Frankfurt-music-fair's lasershows or Kraftwerk concerts, sitting on my fathers shoulders. This source of inspiration lead me to very early artistic experiments involving slide projectors, optical lenses and color filters or making stop-motion films with my fathers super8 camera.

At the University for Art and Design in Offenbach (HfG Offenbach) i explored digital image creation in different forms like programming and synthesis, video, 3d modeling. In addition i studied fine-art and ceramics at the Institute for Ceramics and Glass Art IKKG in Höhr-Grenzhausen. The principles and approaches with which i work in programming and 3d software are surprisingly well translatable into raw-materials and ceramic processes. They appear like mathematical fragments which interact in the kiln, similar to digital generative systems.
