Quiet Noise

Quiet Noise is about rewriting the script of yourself. In my work I play with various kinds of documents and objects that are connected to my personal history and the landscape where I grew up. To collide dreaming with reality is why I take up the camera. The surface of a photograph is loaded with hopes and feelings that are in the same rhythm with the changes that take place in life. It’s an unstable but safe feeling of freedom.

The self-portraits are part of a healing process that included getting rid of physical pain. For the exploration of the inner and outer world of experience I have employed an aura camera that measures the electromagnetic field. Because the connections between all living things fascinate me. How collective memory is endlessly recorded in nature and the body’s DNA as well as objects and spaces.

I had a need to photograph silence when I felt the most pain or longing. The garden that I explore in my pictures is an environment that was once shaped and planted
by my relatives but is now allowed to grow freely. The nature surrounding the house reminds me of continuity. For plants don’t try to fool us into thinking that anything is eternal. It is soothing for me to look at a landscape that seems to be still while simulta- neously noticing how even the smallest things in nature aren’t actually still or quiet but constantly in motion and moving forward.
