About Project Silver Maple Ballroom 2016 – 2017

This project is about manipulation, mental and verbal, I think right now you will find this phenomenon everywhere.
Whether we talk about the Trumps of our time, or Google with his manipulative data searches, or the way it is brutally used within religion.
To me it looks like ordinary people all over are deluded by overpowering loud rude speeches, mind boggling internet data, the power of media, without asking themselves what they might feel or think.
It seems as if as a sincere person that is civilized, thinks, analyses, educates him or herself, is powerless by this short-sighted and self-centred behaviour.

 Project Refugees 2015

To be named refugees as part of anonymous numerous groups that are wandering around in Europe and elsewhere around the world is one thing.
To be able to give these people a face is another.
This as an artist is my small contribution.
