In my video Welcome I show the old tradition that exists in many countries where guests are welcomed with bread and salt. Bread and salt are metaphors for the essentials of life (the bread) and for the necessary flavor (the salt). It symbolizes the desire for community, prosperity, protection from evil spirits and is said to give satisfaction and happiness. With this, you wish the guests happiness, sedentariness and peace.
SCHNITTSTELLEN,/INTERFACES 2020, 1 min 24 sec
We meet often in our lives, our paths are fatefully overlapping . After that I am mostly alone in this place, with my feelings, thoughts and ideas. Interfaces are places where our lifes are turning, taking a different direction and are leaving the planned path.
UNFASSBARE ZEIT/Inconceivable time , 2020, 3 min, 17 sec
Inconceivable time - conceivable picture. A moment in the past or a wish for the future - quickly over. Images of places, situations or people appear before the inner eye, becoming interpretations of happy or sad moments without the chance to change them.
Corona Isolation Ironically, but true, 2020, 5 min
I describe how I experienced the Corona Lockdown, my opinion, how I spent the time during the Lockdown, my feelings and my vision about the future for the "After Corona Isolation". Corona isolation has changed our lives, made personal communication difficult and a “new normal” has emerged
Memories of Little Jerusalem in Sefrou, 2020, HD, 2min 30 sec
In Sefrou, we explored what’s left of the city’s once very lively Jewish culture and its quarters, the Mellah. Before the mass migration (a modern time Exodus?) to Israel in the early 1960s, Sefrou was called Little Jerusalem.

Climate change is shifting a lot in our lives. Animals in particular are exposed to these processes without protection, many animal species are threatened with extinction, bird and fish populations are declining, the dying of trees, But it is basically a give-and-take basis. Nature strikes back. Our Living conditions are getting tougher. How far do the changes go? It depends on us.

it was love at first sight. Yes, I know there are several trees here, but for me it is the one tree that stands on several legs. I want to take this tree with me. Tomorrow, when I wake up in
another place, when I look out of my window, I am longing to see my tree, my love again.
The project was realized in Artists in Residence Programm -Ateliergemeinschaft Kunsthalle Kleinschönach 2019
OPEN DIALOG Today we live in a dynamically developing world, where often what is considered safe today has no value tomorrow. Spatial distances are quickly overcome with modern means of transport. This leads to encounters between people which were recently unthinkable. Open exchange arises between those People, which is intensely and emotionally led- Relationships are made, but due to different lifelines quickly lost again-people have to go different ways- The separations are painful ... The project was realized in Petrozavods, Rapublic of Karelia, Russia in 2018 during an Karelia Artist in Residence programin Медиа-центр Vыход/ Media Center Vykhod

Finally free - Escape from civilization - freed from all constraints. The mountain world, which is so hostile to life in the first place, immediately conveys a feeling of security and immediately becomes a place of longing for the beholder. The floating ceiling gives the place something mystical, there the little church, spirituality awakens - the so unapproachable place becomes the source of deeper knowledge for those who reach it. Shoes that no one owns, footprints in the snow - departure to another life. Part of the Project By the Way 365 Macedonia

Art % Craft / Sanat % Zanaat, 2016, 10 min.
Das Video ist im Sommer 2015 in Ibradi-Ormana aufgenommen worden.
In den zwei Orten waren über 80 Künstler aus der ganzen Welt zu einem Workshop eingeladen.
Ormana ist ein kleines Dorf in der Türkei mit 1000 Einwohnern. Die Leute die dort leben waren von den Künstlern "erschüttert". Ich habe mit den Einvohnern ein Interviewe darüber geführt was ihnen die Kunst bedeutet.Für alle Menschen ist die Kunst gleichbedeutende mit ihrer täglichen Handwerk art % craft https://vimeo.com/156133790

ESSENCE 2010, 4 min, Every perspective is shown as own identity, each of them is occupying the artist completely. They are mutually entering an elevator for being traced back to there very core, combined and interwoven – in a creative process in which the artist is keeping prevalence over every perspective. As a result this very essence is depicted to the viewers, here embodied as the one artist which returns from the elevator .
Treppenhaus One of the important motives in this Video are staircases. They are in my view a strong symbol of our way up and down – They are used as a depiction of all the numerous steps in our life and how they lead us up and down.
Time - In me - In you - Before me - Behind me - Step inside the time - Step through the time - Step ahead of time -To reach the time - How long for? - I don’t know - I need time
CIRQUITI it once began with a big bang, the creation of the earth and as far as mankind is concerned with the first human Adam. Since then the world is captured in a consistent loop of decomposition and resurrection. Humans are fertile, increased, and made themselves masters of the earth; they are apparently rulers over every thing moving on the earth - arent they?
