I am an artist exploring how light and color change perception of interior space. recently, I have been developing works to deploy in public spaces.
My installations involve appropriating electronic products as well as designing and building lights and circuitry.
By the end of 2009 i will make my diploma at the academy for media arts, cologne. at this academy, I worked as a tutor in color correction for video and film approaching this both technically and conceptually. I enjoy learning new skills as well as sharing them with others. so far, these skills include editing of image and sound, designing websites, working with electronics, programming, operating lighting systems for theater and film, creating holographic images and building small and big things.
