The work is an investigation into my subjective position in the world. Performing for the camera and through the use of symbols, my interest lies in revealing glimpses of intangible perceptions and experiences unfolding in time. Real elements, like threads and rope, are sometimes incorporated into the image. I have worked with photography, video and performance, but my work is not attached to any specific medium.
