Self portrait, 2011


Working with digital-based photography and videography is like an experimentation and exploration to me. I'm always searching for the nearly endless potentials of these media to create art that reflects on the nature of the used device itself.

I like to open the ready-made black boxes, study them and alter their traditional operation. I willingly let errors in creative processes, but I also like to control them within certain limits.
