Artist’s Statement
For me, the artistic process is a way of thinking differently about certain circumstances. Questions that perhaps otherwise would not be conceivable become possible during the working process. Whereas science produces knowledge, my work deals with the process of knowledge production, reflecting the method. In a sense, it can be interpreted as a kind of “second-order observation.” My main focus is on our perception, experience and understanding of the external world. What’s captured is the process of creating images rather than the images themselves.
