To me, light and sound are closely related. I mean this in a very literal way. I hear light and I see sound. All of my work exists with colorful and musical aspects.
In the dawn of my career I was involved with the clashes and harmonies between people and places. My artwork could be seen as a straight reaction to issues on the political scene and a variety of other social (mis)constructions. While I am still interested in human interactions and political climates, my practice is beginning to move from a kind of activist approach (balancing by creating opposition) to a spiritual and scientific investigation (healing of unbalances and creation of alternatives). Art can be a great documenting tool, but it is my experience that an anti-approach to dissatisfactory situations strengthens the opposition more than it creates a resolution. Whereas I used to focus on authority, hierarchies, communication, prejudice, gender, racism and commercialism with an attempt to rip the unjust apart, I am now moving towards creating healing qualities through the vibrations in my art. I am deeply interested in positive reinforcement and the conjunction between spirituality and science.
My processes are experimental, and my projects are improvisational and interdisciplinary, often interactive and collaborative. My performative approach, mixed with an intuitive development of my concepts, makes the process an important part of the material presentation of my artwork - this being installations, dance performances, concerts, videos, paintings, drawings, sound and light recordings, archives and music. As an artist, I see it as my privilege and responsibility to work with different methods as a way to develop and present ideas. My goal is to inspire the audience (participant) to create a positive environment, both within themselves and in the world we live in. I always challenge myself and my surroundings in order to create an understanding of potentials, qualities and abilities within ourselves and our surroundings.
