My process begins with a photo diary and written observations. These materials are building blocks of a storyboard for films. Combined with atmospheric electronic music, my work is a subjective and fragmented narrative that reveals our inner life and our sexual personae.
Born in 1980, Trbovlje, Slovenia
Based in Amsterdam
