Artist statement


My work deals with the transitions between the analogue and digital space, as well as with the loss and transformation of data and energy in an attempt to capture and transmit moments via recording technologies. To investigate these media and time intersections I develop different photography, video and sound techniques that forcefully merge, not only different mediums, but also diverse moments in time. I work with photographs and documentary film material from the 1940s to the 1960s from Germany and the US and process the found footage with seemingly alchemistic methods, using self-built apparatuses, autonomous algorithms or tweaked software to create new, singular moments that carry lingering digital and analogue traces of passed instants.
