It is still important to communicate the complex interrelationships of the foundations of human life in society and art in order to ensure the careful use of the earth's resources for the survival of humanity. For me, this includes the conscious perception of the micro- and macrocosm of nature and the earth in sound and image.
In order to report artistically on something that goes beyond one's own imagination, de- subjectivised basic material is required for artistic production. My preoccupation with the microscopic sound and visual worlds of fauna allows me to discover the subtlety of the richly varied internal structures in order to create artistically designed spaces of experience.
