Sound and Vision is an ongoing body of work that explores cinematic phenomena occurring from "moving pictures". I became enthused with psychological side-effects of filmmaking and post-production processes. I am interested in how they prompt expectations and tamper with anticipation. The bodies of work are fuelled by a question: "do sounds drive images or do images que sounds?". Some work are individual photos or a series. Others result in larger installations and audio works.

I lived in several large cities over years I realized that I needed coping-mechanisms from the mass amounts of sound, light and bustle. The first attempt was becoming a student of Zen Buddhism. I learned to slow things down and detach from over-stimulation. Next came noise-cancelling earphones, then swimming, workouts and saunas. Wearing sleeping masks. Sound and Vision became my aesthetic defence mechanism to urban bombardment. A positive "nod" to David Bowie's song lyric "I will sit right down waiting for the the gift of sound and vision" as an aesthetic.
