Info


I am a visual artist from Belgium. I make a variety of work ranging from videos to installations. Most of my work stems from the desire to capture the forever unattainable and to crystallize the ephemeral. In the pursuit of that seeming impossibility, I mostly work with digital media. I am captivated by the melancholic poetry and illusionary nature of computer simulations. Chromakeys are also a recurring element in my work. Chromakeys (blue screens and green screens) are used on film sets as a placeholder for a specific imaginary scene or object that is filled in afterwards during post-production. The finished film shows no trace of these placeholders. In my work however, they are never actually filled in or erased. They stand on their own, as carriers for an infinite number of imaginary possibilities.
