My works are compositions of landscapes that are charged with local histories. Using video and sound manipulation with digital adaptation techniques, I merge places and times into non-existing yet very familiar environments. Contradictory to the “high-tech”, highly processed editing methods I use, the way I collect these materials is extremely basic: It is me, alone, with a small camera.
