*12/1977 in Birkfeld (Stmk.), lives and works in Vienna


After graduating from the Higher Technical College of Fine Arts in Graz  (focus on architecture and painting), I studied Intermedia Art with Sound-Art Pioneer Bernhard Leitner at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna (graduation with distinction) and History of Art at the University of Vienna, Austria.

 

My work focuses on the engagement with interactions, frictions and spaces between different media types (sound, sculpture/object, light, text, video, photography and architecture). Contextualizing the sensory perception of space, time and location as well as the examination of cognitive processes and technical errors are central themes that I realize in my space installations, sculptures, interventions and performances. Space thereby turns into a place that changes with the recipient’s position, allowing for a situational and continuously changing perception. How the space is perceived is nevertheless deliberately limited to a certain field, through which cognition is led and choice is channeled. The exploration of and experiments with architectural, virtual or even social spaces are fundamental.
