Kapitel 1 examines the metamorphosis and transformations. This is a moment taken from a larger context. Light and darkness, reminiscent of a theater where the characters play their roles.
In my work I approach the theme of transformation and transition.
I visually mix the imagined and the real, trying to investigate where and how we as individuals meet our common reality? What do these states/phases of transition and change look like?
