“Thematically my work revolves around the potential of knowledge generation and knowledge storage; I deal with the possibilities of collecting, systematizing, and remembering. In terms of method, I overlay and extract information, which, through decontextualization and reordering, creates new communicative structures that make visible both internal and external processes. Here I use mostly elements from scientific and mundane contexts, such as satellite images, diagrams, old engravings, textbooks, postcards. This is broadened with motifs from art history and literature, as well as pencil drawings and stitched lines. My working practice is like a form of (inter-) weaving: processes of writing, drawing, archiving, and thinking take place simultaneously and are inseparable.”
