William Blake once said that the only way to grasp infinity, is through minute particulars and the wirey bounding line. The world is not made up of anything all-encompassing. But rather of small particular events, actions and observations, and the ways in which they connect to form lines and flows and bigger bodies or blocks of space-time. Reality is made in dialogue. It emerges from the in-betweens and the regularities of life are nothing more than a temporary barrier island of stability in stormy seas of constant flux.
I have lived most of my life in some sort of an in-between, be that as an interdisciplinary artist; a transnational nomad; a seafaring croupier; a night worker from a lower-class neighbourhood in the process of gentrification or; the son of two divorced psychologists who each pledge allegiance to two very different philosophies of life.
As an artist, I am interested in how reality is negotiated through similarity and contrast, as well as finding, probing and communicating ideas in the broader sense. My work often takes the shape of moving image, but the medium I use vary depending on the topic at hand. I work according to logic of form reflecting content, rather than within a specific aesthetic or technique, as I have a general dislike towards uniformity and standardisation. The world is not uniform and it is certainly not fixed, and the greatest mistake we could make is to assume that it is no longer open for discussion.
The image is a remix of the Mac OSX desktop image “Yosemite 5.jpg”, which I have chosen to represent me as it was made today, and therefor probably best reflects who I am at this specific moment in time, and what I do today.
