Artist Statement

I am fascinated by coexistence, evolution and altruism. My artwork explores the conditions of living things that share limited space and resources in a peaceful way. The foundation of my artwork is build on scientific methods like investigation and observation. Those methods support my theories about life, enabling my artwork to shift from an imaginary state to a state of reality. I recreate coexisting and evolving environments in interactive multimedia installations, using technologies, such as electronic and motor engineering and computer programming.
