Our daily life is an ever-shifting collage of events, hidden emotions, thoughts and lives that are unfolding themselves into the 'now'. The physical and imaginary remnants of what happened in these 'nows' are what I long to unearth and implement in my practice. My definition of remnant stretches from childhood memory, to cultural systems, to places and objects that soon, or already, have ceased to exist. In order to rebuild these memories and fantasies I combine found objects with imaginary shapes to bind them together in a new constellation in the present.

Using methods similar to building a movie set, my work could be seen as an uncanny environment which I use to observe and influence the audience. Within this scripted setting, I use commands to guide the audience into exhibiting behaviour that they otherwise might not display. The accepting or rejecting of these commands influences the eventual outcome of the work. The individual becomes part of a group which is creating a collective memory. The moment in which all these actions lead up to events I could never have predicted is what fuels my fascination and enthusiasm to keep building upon the aftermaths of my creations.
