Breathing and metabolism have become major issues in my current artistic explorations. The 16mm multiple exposure film Breathing Landscapes (4′, 18 f/s) has been made in Spring 2023.

Furthermore, I began to work with cyanotype on fabric in order to engage with the landscape of my childhood. I also experimented with cameraless methods. Plant Lights (2022, 4′, 18 f/s) is a 16mm film that reacts with blossoms and elements of plants.

Liquid Exposure
In this article, I will introduce my explorations with cameraless photochemical film processes, among them cyanotype. I work with fabric, nontoxic chemicals, light, air, and water in order to engage with natural materials the environment is made of. Focusing on metabolic conversions, I am particularly interested in the development of an approach which is based on the idea that all li [mehr]
It is not knowledge of reality that makes us love reality passionately. It is feeling, the first and fundamental value. As for nature, we begin by loving it without knowing it, without really seeing it, by actualizing in things a love that has its basis elsewhere. Then we search for its details because we love it as a whole without knowing why. The enthusiastic descriptions given of it are [mehr]
Textus / Virus
Weaving a connective tissue: A fabric that mediates exchange. The word 'textus', borrowed from Latin, is being used in a metaphorical way. In Stitches in the Heart (2019), a multiple exposure 16 mm short film of a minimally invasive cardiac surgery on the mitral valve, I traced the processes of sewing. The operation was performed by means of endoscopic 3D videography. The film introduces a [mehr]
