My work deals with ways of digital imagery and the analog transformation of those worlds into the pictorial space. The analog production process breaks and livens up the grid, which functions as a structuring system. Due to the lengthy manufacturing process, the deceleration becomes a main aspect of my work. By doing so, the indirection itself is the goal. Analog processes grasp brief moments on screen, which would otherwise only be visible for fractures of a second. In the series of typewriter-drawings, the motives are achieved by typing on an old-fashioned manual typewriter. This body of work is linked to the series of woodprints and rooted in the search for a different analog translation of digital imagery. I utilize this printing method as a means of producing paintings in a wider sense. I write these motives line by line on Japanese paper, using different letters and symbols. On closer inspection, they remind the viewer of binary codes, emphasizing the connection to the imagery from the digital world.
