as a visual artist, filmmaker and founder of the experimental 'opensource archive', my work practice revolves around artistic research, scientific writing and curatorial practice. through a variety of media such as installation, film, performance and print, I often deal with questions about different concepts of memory, representation and information gathering, storage and transmission focused on their social impact and relation to matter. therefore archives, artifacts, monuments, social narratives and concepts of the digital became the subject of my research, which results in multitude forms of trans-disciplinary and collaborative investigations. for me, the process of translating information into other media, determined by the properties of their material nature, plays a crucial role in these engagements. in experimenting with the translation processes and modifying the way of storage I seek to expand and edit the meanings of the information to create new insights. in this way, collective and social methods of cultural production and memory are to be developed and tested.
