I guess I´m best known for my ultra high resolution, large scale photography work which each consists of tens of thousands of single photos often shot through the microscope. To perceive the unperceivable, to see the audible, to hear the visible or feeling data is one of my main aims. My art focuses on changed and expanded perception. It is revealing a more complete and ‘holistic’ point of view.
My main interests are questions dealing with perception, reality and truth as well as the interaction of art, science, technology and society.
