My work always goes through the medium video, but it has many different outcomes.
Every new piece of work needs a different way to present itself.
Sometimes you see more movement in still images than in a moving image.
You can only see change when the previous is almost the same as the next .
I think I developed this way of looking to my work, because my roots lay in painting.
With painting you look at a still image for a long time,
and this concentration I use in my work and is resulting in a very slow time span in video.
With my work I step into existing situations from a non-daily perspective.
With this I gather information where I surprise myself again and again with the so truthful aesthetic images.
I am not making the images, but collect the existing. After collecting, I make my own rearrangements.
Therefore nature is a very big inspiration for all my work. Sometimes very clearly and sometimes in the background.
Nature is existing and I am making it’s narrative.
