Artist’s Statement 

The base for my works has been my interest for optical devices and archaic technology of the history of moving picture. My works often raise questions about the relationship between picture, illusion, imitating, and reality. They consist of transparent photographs in several layers. Together these layers can form an image of a sudden crystallization of different moments; an impression of an almost three-dimensional photograph. The moment portrayed in the picture features different, overlapping layers of time. The present is made of structures of history and it becomes the past as we move towards the future. The works reach towards the indefinable that exists between three-dimensionality and two-dimensionality; between reality and the picture. The pictures are both real photographs and fictive, spontaneously forming props of a rebuilt reality.
