I work with photography, moving image, objects and space. I aim to elevate the intensity of places where I both make and show my work through creating semi-fictional and semi-constructed platforms for encounters between people and things. My interest lays in human-nonhuman relationships and in the ontology of material as well as one ́s relationship to a camera. Associations and spontaneity play a central role. I aim for the kind of haptic visuality where eyes operate like the sense of touch – striving to combine the photographic and the sculptural, blurring the boundaries between image and spatiality – materializing the gaze.
