My work is about production and circulation of social imaginaries, i.e. ways and institutions in which we imagine ourselves and what we do to sustain (or escape) these.

It often involves questioning production of spectatorship: Systems and structures of presentation and circulation of both images as well as the bodies these images address, depict or exclude.

I ask questions of address, desire and language in relation to contexts such as architecture, public space, speech, view, landscape, cinema, abstraction and power.
