The conflicting situations that are the starting point of my work are communicated using different media, mainly photographs, videos and objects. I use these elements so as to create discrete levels or planes behind or in front of the pictorial surface. The aim is to infuse the image with depth, liveliness and three-dimensionality so as to make it seem more real both to me and its eventual viewers; another aim is that it would enable me to share the original conflicting situations with the viewer. My term for the final works installed in a gallery or some other venue is ‘situation sculpture’.

 The Solar generator exhibition

The Solargenrator exhibition was opened in the Staffas manor and its park on Monday 1.7.2013. In the exhibition works relating to renewable energy, experimental technology and innovative ways of using these were shown.

The starting point for the exhibition was the observation that artists often use technology in an imaginative or wrong way. This means that they by mistake sometimes come upon new uses for appliances, which were originally meant for something completely different. Artists also create alongside the mainstream or in the margins ways of doing things and come up with technological, social and ecological suggestions.
