About

Through my work I want to show the beauty of ordinary things. By looking at daily movements or actions in a critical, curious and playful way, silly things, like drawing a chair to a table, can be fascinating. I try to look at my environment as a playground. Ideas get to me while playing with the objects in this environment and here my personal interests can be translated into machines that repeat their movements endlessly. While creating these machines, I am constantly running into scientific and physics problems. These confrontations with power, speed, balance and gravity as well as technical limitations lead to new ideas and images. It is my goal to amaze and surprise the people who see my work and, since it calls for interaction, to help them create new associations.
