I studied Transmedia Arts and Sculpture in Vienna but also have a background in Graphic Design. My job as a visual artist in a club for electronic music, was the beginning for my experiments with live video and the interaction between sound and light.
Pipilotti Rists video art and installations are a great inspiration for me, as well as the art of Kurt Schwitters and Gordon Matta-Clark. Architecture in general and some film makers like Maya Deren, Claire Denis and David Lynch.
Usually I get inspired by traveling. I try to work on a project in a different area for a longer period of time. Surrounded by different architecture, the results are often video works that deal with real and / or utopian living spaces and their inhabitants.
I am working on a Virtual Reality project, that deals with architecture and our own personal perception. I am also interested in the gap between digital and analogue. Grown up between these two worlds I sometimes feel alienated. In my opinion this kind of dilemmas is always a good starting point for a new work.
