My work comes from a concept of spatial sensibility and deals with processes of change related to the ethereal environment analysing also social structures in the daily confrontation with technologies. Moving at the subtle limits of the Inside and Outside, it becomes also site-time-specific, which crystallises mostly in fragile installations and sculptural works as immersive realities. This opens room for participation, i.e. 1:1 interventions live and performances. It expands and compresses in abstract empirical noise paintings as sound frequencies, collages, filmic and video works, exceeding the “medium”. Engaged with vital processes, transformation and growth, I let it play with format and scale, deconstructing, fragmenting and re-layering. I juxtapose sound to visual where beyond the aesthetics I can explore an inner experience of musicality. I am interested in the dialectics of private and public spheres, inner and outer worlds and their osmotic boundaries. I tackle themes that embrace language, communication, life, nature-artifice, perception in their physical and virtual levels. Within my work I attempt to emotionally provoke the audience while leaving an empty space for the imagination.
