I have been working in paint and time-based media. I combine traditional painting mediums, 3-D computer graphics and photography in order to push the boundaries between conventional painting and contemporary media. I work with found objects that reveal duration and sensation, such as stones, rusty cans, moldy bread and walls. These objects change their appearance over time without being observed. And then they suddenly reveal their history visually in the human gaze. The act of looking at the artwork involves time as a resource, as do these objects. As the light of stars from thousands of years ago becomes visible in one’s eyes in the future, the viewer experiences the image as a nomad who sees stars in the sky.
