Freelance artist in: fine arts, electronic music production, mixed media art and actionistic interventions.

My general intention is to educate the public about earth as a self-organizing system, whose stability mankind is dangerously disturbing. The goal is to perpetuate awareness for this fact, to encourage people to accept and appreciate the complexity of our dynamic environment in the infinite universe, infinite in space and what is time supposed to be? I wish people would make this knowledge (and knowledge of lack thereof) part of their daily lives, so we can find ways of sustainable living. We oughta search fast.

My art throws a spotlight on the borderzone between “nature” and man-made (or indeed -destroyed) “humanosphere”. It shows fictive extremes warning us of the consequences of ignoring the impact of our actions. The art should also serve the purpose of generating money to on one hand finance further projects, on the other hand be donated to selected NGOs dedicated to the conservation of our environment.

Electronic Music (Experimental, DnB, Jungle, Chillout, Ambient):
In my tracks, which are mostly speechless, I express issues, states, events that move or accompany me in life, from environmental devastation to heartbreak, fantastic and fictional stuff, critic of society and even glorification (of i.e. the universe, nature, etc.)
