 Artist Statement

As a photographer and designer I work with sources of natural light as well as light installations.
I examine the changes of natural spectral colours generated from light reflections and artificial self build LEDS. My own physical move, the move of the light source and the time involved in this process are important for my experimental photography called „light painting“.
By trying to transform the transcendent into a perceivable form I want to make observable what remains hidden to the human eye under normal conditions. I examine potential and illusions of perception. I intent to involve the observer actively in my light installations, light paintings and integrated sounds to become an essential protagonist of the artistic performance through which the observer in the position to elaborate sensory, emotional and cognitive perceptions.
I am interested in exploration of the process of crossing boundaries involving expansion of space and exploration of the nature of time exposed in visual medium. I enjoy getting to know people from different nations and cultural backgrounds, delving into their philosophies, experience life in different countries and photographing conservation areas.
