My work takes its point of departure in the human ear as an organ that we use to navigate the physical world, and as a sensory apparatus that can simultaneously open up this world towards other speculative and enigmatic horizons.

To me, sound is the most affective dimension of human perception, and as such it offers an extremely rich and intricate pathway into psychological, existential and social situations and conditions. 

Grounded in a conceptual minimalist tradition, I investigate sound in and of itself but also as a cultural phenomenon. It creates worlds, intimate imaginings and expanded spaces.

I am especially interested in the way that sound - as music - has shaped human imagination and cultures all around the world for thousands of years... and will continue to do so for as long as humanity is around. I work in photography, sculpture, text, performance and drawing.
