Drawing and experimental animation form the basis of what I do in the studio. I'm particularly interested in trying to navigate the disordered mess of organic and digital parts of everyday life, where the difference between play and survival sometimes loose its original meaning.

A common source material I use is found footage downloaded from social media, where human longing for sensational experiences are expressed through everything from unboxing videos to extreme sports and space tourism.

Through a time consuming process where I rework these images into animation and drawings, I seek to slow down moments in a technologically accelerating world to an observable stillness.
