The theme of my work in progress is the impact of borders and ultimate control in places which are designed to create a parallel world. These sceneries are artificial settings and constructions which create conflicts within our everyday life. Borders and control of areas which are excesses examples for staging, an imitation of the reality, as well as the imitation of natural structures, especially in still lifes are essential aspects of my recent artwork. The issue is to create a photographic, mixed media installation which brings a new perspective about universal themes such as control, staging, surveillance, and value. The images of this series and their presentation form quote the complexity and diversity of photography as a media.
