Artist statement:

The main focus in my work is dealing with the issues of public space and group behaviour. I think that public space reflects directly or indirectly on processes in society and it is constantly changing. In the time of „ubiquitous computing“ also the meaning of public space is changing. When boundaries between private and public blur, the space could be redefined as an accessible space.

In my work process I use photography and video as well interfering tactics, like public space installations. Also I´m trying to find and use connections between city space and virtual space. The goal of my work is to analyze the actions and processes in these spaces. I also try to point out some of the problems connected to the topic and offer potential or alternative solutions for them.
