Julia July (1998)
I place confidence in giving the world a promising future through self-consciousness, connecting with each other and having attention for details. We can close the growing gap between people by keeping this in mind. By expressing my findings in a visual and accessible way, I hope to help people to look for each other again and recognize themselves in each other.
I use mixed media techniques like collaging and video-art with a graphic eye to translate my interests into visuals. By using techniques that include other senses than only words like images,sounds and touch I want to raise a more direct reaction.
Placing a material under a microscope and finding new insights and images in an analytical way, is an example of how I approach subjects for my designs. I am convinced that zooming in on the smaller things will create a bigger impact in the end.
