Artist Intro

'My art practice is driven by the curiosity towards the mechanics of kinetic and interactive objects. It is also an ongoing process of trying to understand the mechanics of surprise. The aim for all my works is to interrupt associations towards familiar objects and taunt inconsiderate assumptions towards them. The surprising elements help to create the magical experience of not completely understanding the structure but enjoying the energy and the mood that it creates.

My passion towards sounds and music also has a big influence on my work. Rhythm relates to assumption, because there is a repeatable and predictable pattern. The interruption of this pattern is a tool to create surprise, which I use in a more conscious way in my practice.'
