In a post dada, post pop era, I see contemporary art as an open horizon, free of boundaries and limitations. In my work I mix still photography, film, video, new media, quotes, samples, sound art, documentation, narrative, abstract, spoken word and poetry into a single, unified new art form.
In my work I try to bring scientific images, concepts and methodology to the art arena. Art and science share the same quest: to explore and portray the elusive existence.
In the Projection Photography process I shoot film/HD video, edit it, project it on textures and objects and capture it again on camera.
The technique allows me to process the image optically. The technique gives the video concrete qualities.
My work refers to the development of art as an evolutionary process. I see evolution as the key principle of the development of art, culture, science, life and matter itself.
The use of languages, reading, imagination, dreams, consumption of media, Mirror Neurons are all simulation processes. Our minds are strong bio electro simulators. My work refers to the simulation aspects of the various media.
