I’m a German born, New York based, interdisciplinary artist, holding degrees in Information Science, Mathematics, Painting, and New Genres. My experience as a bilinguist and my diverse academic background strongly influence my practice and are echoed by an expanded use of artistic mediums and material: I work with traditional materials like ceramics and wax, contemporary industrial products (micro controllers boards, cables, aluminum), and digital technology.
I create research-based videos and installations, proceeding from elliptical narratives, informative language, and poetic writing. Focused on materiality and technical processes, my transformative sculptures dialectically produce the concepts I explore and connect philosophical thought to handmade objects. My paintings combine a figurative visual language and conceptual approach.

Throughout my multifaceted practice, time is my main concern: I explore related theoretical concepts like change, entropy, and information.
Capitalist time concerns me: Temporalities and timescapes have changed and accelerated. Individual and social time are regulated by the economy of the clock.
Ecological time is shifting through the human made climate catastrophe resulting in the destabilization of ecosystems.

Following the threads of time of my found subjects, different animal protagonists, I explore the entanglement between philosophy, semiotics, and actuality. I weave together disparate references spanning histories and geographies, allowing information to produce surrealism and science to function as the imaginary.
Addressing the intersections and complicities between the cultural, historical, and ecological through humor, logic, poetry, trivia and information, I create conceptual, linguistic and visual stalemates which open up space for thought, empathy, conversation, and renegotiation of knowledge.
