I’ve made the video work “LANDING” within an exchange program between artists from Nancy and Karlsruhe. After exploring Nancy and the exhibition space I have taken several detail shots of the red and orange gallery floor. These images were reworked, flipped in color, set into motion, and finally projected onto the gallery ceiling. The final work shows a projection overhead with a continuous flight following a rift across a blue surface. The origin and scale of the images are hard to estimate. The video is enhanced by locally recorded, but highly reworked sound.

The video loop Horror Vacui was developed as an in situ work for the exhibition Pretty Vacant at Villa Renata (Basel, CH). It shows a slowly turning vase, which is mirroring the rotating interior of the empty villa. Additionally to this moving scene a static text is being displayed in the lower third of the screen. It deals with the meaning of the title “Horror Vacui” and its origin.
Upon first sight the video looks like it was professionally shot inside the villa, but at a closer look the mirrored space and its rotation reveal subtle logic errors.
Without ever going to the villa the so called “in situ” work was entirely made using 3D animation software. The visual part was constructed from plane images which were sent to all participating artist as a general introduction to the space. Whereas the text was found on Wikipedia and just slightly modified.  -> watch excerpt
