My artistic effort is the cutting point between art and science. With my conceptional work and paintings I try to fathom the frontiers of human perception to find out what lies in this moment when human cognition touches the invisible surrounding world.
I am interested in the areas that humans know from science but which cannot be reached through sensation. For example, cosmologists assume that 85% of all matter is invisible and cannot be experienced by humans. They call this „Dark Matter“ and recently also „The Invisible“.
The awareness that humans customarily only experience reality by sensory perception and the question how this conception of reality could be moved forward, were the considerations I worked with in my latest projects.

inside is outside, outside becomes inside.
the stone loses its hardness, passes it to me.

what is body, what is external?
i perceive the stone to be a part of me.
it’s part of my world because i’m holding it.
my world is in motion.
to become and fade away.
the stone also lives. through me.
then i die and begin anew.
