In my artisic process i connect my experiences of virtual and analouge 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 inbetween grayzones. Therefor i deal with cognitive and physical structures, generative systems, resonance 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 verry early artistic experiments involving dia-projectors, optical lenses and colour filters or my fathers super8 camera.

at the university for art and design in offenbach (hfg) i explored digital image generation in different forms like programming, video, 3d moddeling. now i study fine-art ceramics at the "institute for ceramics and glass art" ikkg in höhr-grenzhausen. the principles and approaches whith which i work in programming and 3d software are surprisingly well translateable into raw-materials and ceramic processes. they appear like mathematical fragments which interact in the kiln, similar to digital geneartive systems.
