I am interested in foreign eyes, unknown perspectives, speculative reality, hidden images, shifting bodies, displaced words, delayed noises and fast cars. To feel the wind. Transportation and movement. Covered, uncovered and covered again I cannot believe the world. Like the alchemist I collect everything I can probably carry, inside-out, to use it for my experiments. Hungry I am - taking in goods and bads, embracing throwback, drinking what is served. To survive. Cheers my friends. I lick surfaces and squeeze into gaps and holes. Look. De-code. Understand. What? Are you crazy? Insert new eye.
In film I seek depths - the flat material leads us to unseen mountains and the deepest waters. Reusing long-lost footage over and over again, I coordinate memory to trigger the inside void of destruction and chasing single frames we end up seeing nothing in flickering darkness. Deconstructing the substances, I let myself fall into minimal illusion in maximal visual intensity.
Friends and enemies as material for the swallowing of matter and meaning. Blending thought and faces, merge differences to feel them only stronger on the inside of my skin. Altercation and confrontation. I need you. We want I. Friction as a necessary good for the creation of warmth.
