In my artistic work I start from the social and local context that I investigate by interacting with inhabitants and histories. I aim to integrate my work within a broader situation and opt for embedding it in a  net of meaning, entangled with world(s).  To relate to a situation I often use found-materials or low-tech techniques that I can use whilst being away from a studio. I am drawn natural materials, crafts, poetry and the outdoors.
