I live and work as a freelance artist in Austria. I also lead projects and workshops in public space on various artistic techniques revolving around light Art and Public Space. My work moves between research, science and experiment, involving “neglected” environments, transitory spaces and the relationship between their individual and collective statements.
My work focuses on critical thinking and the search for the transformation of social reality. It reflects on the world and comments on its image, it is a tool and a means of its transformation. I am interested in public space, city space, the sphere of public communication, and ordinary people. Art is a part of democratic practice, based on freedom. For me, art contributes to a very specific purpose, namely to raise awareness, to consolidate and also to examine freedom and social rights. My installations are created mainly in public space to make art more accessible to all. I think that public space is excellent in order to inform, to make the public aware of the possibilities and its power in changing the modern world, while democracy and freedom are a practice, not a given.
In the creative process, a key element for me is also the aesthetics part of the work, the use of light and to introduce or even to set the work in motion. My concept of work is always connected with dynamics, kinetic images frequently feature with my practice.
