The idea of interaction between the viewer and an artwork, mediated by technologically progressive visualization methods, lies at the core of my work. In my installations I use various art forms on an equal basis: dance, music, cinema and performance. Akin to an explorer I raise questions related to social psychology and theories of perception suggesting solutions to them by contemporary artistic means, that is by taking a subjective stance behind a camera. My installations focus on the role of the viewer and his or her interaction with an artwork and bring forth ways of provoking the viewer’s involvement thus allowing hidden mechanisms of human behaviour to be revealed.
My research process happens here and now, in the
increasingly technologized present, it is deeply rooted
in cultural context. Photography and other digital media
always record a trace, which indicates the former
presence of something. Attesting to a certain event the
trace at the same time enshrines the technology in use,
thus acting as a witness to contemporaneous culture. In
a similar manner I tend to reflect on behavioral
patterns and cultural mechanisms that are characteristic
of contemporary society.
