In my work, I am researching architecture and urban planning and I am trying to approach these from a wide variety of media: photographic series, sculpture and scale models, video and drawing, that often come together into installations.

I find the ideologies with which architectural spaces around us are designed highly fascinating; for example, the modernist idea that daylight and space are primarily conditions for human well-being and happiness. Windows, walls, and façades are a recurring motif in my work.

In my practice over the past few years, I have focused on the function and role of ‘the window’ in our daily environment and as a motive in the history of art and architecture. In my recent and ongoing, project A Building’s Memory, I am investigating the way that architecture is being build-up and how it eventually will wear off again.

In my work scale models are fulfilling a central role. Building scale models is a way to literally get a grip on buildings that yet have to be realized, but also as a way to bring back the buildings or architectural fragments from the past.
