I work with my own life, for me, action itself is the way to actually create something in the world. Since 2009 I started to study into ritual and occult practices which have heavily influenced my artwork, from my understanding of these and getting away from using "occult imagery" as candles and such, I try to make my own symbols that connect my notions of reality to what may be possible for other type of realities.

My main influences for the thinking and making of projects are Chaos Magick and Alchemy combined with my own emotional and paradigm shifting life process. I am interested in vibration, the very foundation of what we call reality, so, very often my actions and projects have a sound aspect to them which leads to installation and experiments within different media.
