This project is an investigation on light, time and space within the subject of photography itself and on the example of the space mission „Rosetta“. This high-tech mission was developed to answer questions about life on earth. Playing with juxtapositions of pictures from ESA depicting the journey to the comet 67P, of the human body and of deteriorating negatives I created a visual journey approaching universal questions on life, transiency, time, what remains from our existence and which imprints we leave behind as human beings.

First self-taught I developed with time an artistic way of working with the medium. I'm interested in what photography as a medium inhabits, what is possible and where the limits are. I often mix medias and explore boundaries of imaging combining e.g. web-based photographs with negatives. My inspiration either comes from philosophical, political, scientific or cultural sources and it takes me usually several years to explore a subject within its wide range and levels and to accomplish work series within the topic. Since years I work on the subject of climate change as a longterm project.
