By means of pseudo-archaeological research, the city reveals itself to him as a constantly developing aesthetic field of research. He documents this spectacle by means of (analogue) photography and thus builds up an equally constantly growing archive of visual material. This archive forms the starting point for his artistic practice, which extends across various disciplines: painting, installation, video and site-specific work.
