Lives and works in Essen, Germany.

Within my work, I examine situations that are present in our everyday life but not perceived
consciously. Small, delicate moments illustrate how I detect the world around me.
Materials are decontextualized from their original use and provided with new different characteristics.
I explore moments in which the intrinsic context is transferred which communicates a gaze,
opinion as well as values, tempers, and peculiarities.
My intention is to affect normal visual and perceptual mechanisms far away from their
cultural coinages and to create a new «space» that reminds us of how different we perceive
I’m searching for images and actions which manifest the beauty of now and its simplicity.
