In my artistic work, I am questioning constant places and conditions. With digital photomontages, I use associative connections, prostheses or gaps in natural and artificial landscapes to make the anthropogenic interpretations of humans visible. There I always find natural or arbitrary forms that I use as a guide in order to continue working with them visually. The result is pictures, objects and installations that stimulate dissonant places.

The fragmentation of an old GDR factory window is devided into four wall works and one room installation.

im fragmental 23

The work is a visual examination of growing up in a small town in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern before, during and after the fall of the Berlin Wall in the so called Baseballschlägerjahre. The entire work moves through a period of 40 years. The wall works consist of fragmented photos of shards. The room installation shows into the hole of fragmentation:

In the serial work unplan tarpaulins – artificial unplanned landscapes – meet natural landscapes. Parts connect to similar structures and create a new location with an implanted prothesis. To each of the works there is an inverted counterpart and the play with transformative intermediate states. There is a wandering between two places.

The installation unplanmembran is a cooperation with the sound and light artist Leo Neumann. There are two transparent fabrics hung one behind the other with two photomontages from my series unplan that are contrasting inside and outside and a light and sound programming by Leo. By playing with the perception of light, the places are transformed into new intermediate states, visible on both sides. Through the choreography of artificial and natural sound sources, synchronized with the lights, an immersive work is created, whereby the viewer can find herself or himself in a "location glitch" for a very short time during the unexpected changes of location.

In the interactive installation unplan-pfütze a puddle in a dark room is illuminated by a projector with the film unplan-pfz-trns. The puddle reflects the film onto the wall, where not only the film can be seen, but also the shape of the puddle, the bubbles of the puddle water and the periodic interruption of the surface tension of the water by a steady drop dripping into the puddle.

In the series tiefenverwandt, I work out natural forms from the pictures and place them large over the connection of a natural and an artificial place, inverting the rest of the picture into the color negative, which gives the picture new levels. The natural form is the essence from which a new stand-alone artifact is created, such as an installation or an object.
