I experience creating as a way of exorcism. Only when the work has come alive the mind is freed of the obsessive thoughts and images. Combining moving image and sound, placed in an environment of theatrically performative backdrops, I revive the past. A tainted illusion; A place that quickly shifts of moods, marked with a rhythm of hypnosis and disillusion. Movement is essential as it shows the process of an image. By making things and moving them around I watch them go trough time and evolve. Sometimes disappear into just diffused fragments. Cause and reaction. It’s about what something changes into, more than how something is.
