I create imaginary worlds in a completely rational solar system with planets consisting of dazzling structures that appear to lure and subsequently constrict the spectator into a promise for a potential future. The spectator is thrown into an alien world where they have to redefine their position as a human being.

To make some sense of it, I aim to scientifically examine this strange and inhospitable universe of my own making. Since the journey is undertaken alone, I have to take on different roles, and while steadily documenting everything, simultaneously take on the roles of a physicist, architect, biologist, geologist, tourist and many more. At This Art Fair I will exhibit my first findings.
