I am a performer. I try to implement ideas. While trying to make music, dancing and assembling, I try to move in a multidimensional way. Sounds, outspoken thoughts or objects are often vehicles for making ideas accessible. These ideas are often as abstract as they are manageable, colourful as obvious, contemporary as referring. And they are often present in abundance. Trying to get an idea means that 20 other questions arise. Choosing is losing, so as many as possible at the same time might give you a clue. In both my visual and time-based work I create space for imagination. Space to continue the sledding ideas. 'Why would you design an idea with the greatest precision if it also comes with adhesive tape.'
