My studio is my mirror, a space in flux, needing constant re-negotiation under scrutiny.

What I do in one sentence: I make work about how we take our environment for granted, resulting in a legacy of disconnected, fragmented experiences in space.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: Fear of confinement in rigid hierarchical structures.

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: There are too many! Let’s just say, working through the stack of ideas with wonderful people in the process.

Artists, I have on my watch list (and why): Jon Rafman, Ryan Trecartin, Tracey Emin, Louise Bourgeious, Miranda July. Something about how social, personal relationships play out in trauma across a variety of media and texts.

I am afraid of not having the force to make anything anymore.

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: I want to be cremated, buried under a tree and lie there inconspicuously.
