My practice is an intersection of design,research and photography that seeks to renegotiate the conditions of the day to day activities by creating usable mundane tools, images and spaces that spark curiosity and invite to tell other stories.
Through research I try to understand the influence of non-living stockholders – such as artefacts, artificial intelligence and systems – on the development of our culture, norms and values. My work aims to provide space to reflect on current conditions. So that we learn to understand our responsibility for all living and non-living inhabitants of the world – globally and locally. I am trying to situate this knowledge in the field of pedagogy by creating tools and spaces for education, in order to initiate and expand the room for unmeasurable areas like play, curiosity, ethics, art and critical reflection.
I want to negotiate the reasons for everyday actions. Away from objective decisions that are merely driven by efficiency, competitive performance and profit, toward activities that reflect our potentials as a person and are done because we truly want to do them.
I collected my capacities as a person and designer during my studies at the Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule and master studies at Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design which resulted in the ability to find a balance between theory and practice by converting interesting fields of research into tangible results. With my skills as photographer and craftsman I transfer ideas into aesthetic proposals. An open minded perspective helps me to stay in touch with my surroundings constantly, be curious and bring norms into question.
