I live and work in Berlin.

I am an artist and work as an experimental researcher in physics and chemistry, where I mainly research printed energy devices.

In my artistic works, I center the critical approaches to mark the clashes and ask questions about what is included and excluded in relations and everyday life between human and nonhuman beings, in between things and the environment.  I experiment with these connections through installation, photographs, and video.

In my recent works, I also write and collect images on daily scientific work, science, and technology through artistic research around structures of scientific space and scientific looking and valuing.  I try to understand the intersections of the forgotten and established attention forms.
