I live in different layers of reality and in my consciousness I see all the different perceptions around me. Our minds are subjective archives that determine our interpretation of everything that we perceive. At the same time our sensory impressions determine our perception. That being said, we are connected with our material environment in a strange way. While we see with our eyes and we feel with our fingers, our brain makes a kind of representation of something we call reality. Everyone has an own and unique perspective. You could say it's an inevitably individual conditioned existence we live in. I find it intriguing how our body and mind are integrated with everything in our physical environment and behaviour. Like for instance in folding a towel. It is a principle that is learned to us at a very young age. In the beginning the action of folding the towel is a conscious act but later on in our lives it becomes an unconscious act. The same principle applies to marketing. Through our sensory impressions our mind gets used to al kinds of rules and concepts that are brought in to our lives. Sometimes I find it disturbing knowing I am part of this situation or system, while other times I can accept it or don't even think about it. As individuals we tailor our daily environment to fit the vision and thoughts we have about our own lives. But what is the reality? You can say; 'everyone is his own man' or 'each man can make decisions on his own'. But everyone is also influenced by his or her own environment. For example in the way one is brought up, which friends one has and ones eduction or occupation. Upon that our actions are induced by our brain at a subconscious level. These aspects of human being and thinking interest me. Therefore I am constantly more or less alert to situations, spaces, objects, interactions or behaviour relating to these aspects and how we try to organise and construct our daily existence. In this context simultaneously I'm triggered by the materials and forms around me. So far my work consist of temporary installations, in which I use photographs, constructions, sculpture and everyday objects. It doesn't matter which material I use. These decisions are a natural outcome from the observations that I do. The space itself also seems to be an important component in my work. I find the space that I work in or the space where the work is going to be exhibited evenly important as the environments and spaces i'm inspired by outside the context of the exhibition space itself. I let myself be guided by the space and the space often has a contribution to the meaning of my work. This is also a kind of natural outcome from working and being in the space. You could say my work is like a conversation between the space and the elements I bring to the space. A conversation about how we perceive everything around us and how we deal with our physical environment. A conversation about the inevitably individual conditioned existence we live in and our awareness of that.  Originally I wrote this text for an admission. The text represents me as an artist and individual. Therefore I want to share it on my website.
