I am an artist and researcher in natural sciences and currently having a postdoctoral position at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. I work with photography, video and objects. I am engaged in text and images mostly in self-published zine format. My scientific research is in the intersection of physics and chemistry and includes device making with common printing methods.
My work investigates critical approaches in the search for  marking  the clashes, inclusion and exclusion in relations, everyday life and daily scientific work through objects, photographs, and video. In my recent works, I approach science and technology through artistic research around forms of scientific space and artefacts with an approach valuing more the forgetten attention forms and mistakes in experimenting.
