He studied Fine Arts, Time Based Media and Visual Communication (Film) at Hamburg Academy of Fine Arts (at/with: please see progress/thankyou 0.3.1-0.4.0). In 2016 he graduated with honors.
His works are shown at international film festivals, exhibitions or other contingencies, sometimes they receive prizes.
He performs with various media and concepts. Main points of interest in time-based stuff are atmospheric long-term dramaturgies with repetitive elements of emotion, reduction, banality or subtle ambivalent radicalism. Some occasionally call this Visual Poetry or Romantic Conceptualism.
