As an artist, I’ve always been interested in various mediums. I started our creating installations, with often had political elements to them. I gradually turned towards filmmaking, which I actually originally studied and worked in. Now my artistic practice is turning again, towards virtual reality documentary storytelling, or more broadly speaking, using immersive tools to create deep and intimate virtual or real worlds for the viewer. We have recently released our second large scale open world virtual reality documentary, and starting to work on our next one, about the inner worlds of children.

I’m interested in creating artworks, which foster the possibility of sharing, listening and learning, be it in the real world or a more abstract or virtual one. I try to create bridges between the inner and outer worlds we populate as humans. For Nakanojo Biennale I’m working on an art work, which looks into memory and tradition, of communal sharing of stories and experiences through food and eating. I want to understand how food is a vessel not only for sustenance but also for family and community lineage, transferring haptic, visual, auditory and olfactory histories. What will happen, when memories and experiences are being conserved more and more only in digital forms and formats? This I hope to study for Nakanojo Biennale.
