I work with poetic and political images in digital and public art environments. Sometimes they move, sometimes they are mapped onto Google Earth or onto a building.
My media art practice of many years is Engaged Media, combining art + advocacy on environmental and related social issues. My work advocates individual and grass root action as a means to an empowered, positive approach to systemic change and a renewed relation to nature. By creating new visual relationships between individual and shared fates I hope to generate empathy, hope and empowerment.
I start with myself. Each of us can make a difference. I want art + culture + us humans to stay here for a bit longer.
