My artistic practice departs from the versatile formality of everyday objects and our encounters with them. I am interested in the thin line between reality and fiction, the visible and invisible and the ambiguity between form and function. In my work I manipulate existing forms into sculptures and installations that hover between the strange and the familiar. In a making process that alternates between digital and manual labour, elements are parsed, magnified, distorted, merged or multiplied, resulting in a visual language dominated by careful compositions and glossy surfaces, evoking both personal associations and distance.
