MUSIC VIDEO


Moonwaker for Sebastian Mullaert
Lichen is an alien beauty of resilience and fragility which grows incredibly slow from the perspective of a human. The world where the Moonwaker lives is where the stillness is a pulsating, breathing flesh, slithering through & suspended in an endless blackness. (2020)




 
LYS for Christian Löeffler
Animations and visuals for music video directed by Lauren Pringle. (2020)




  
LOG for Khoiba
It sinks to the bottom, next to the piece of skin with a kerosene sheen, next to the current-combed strand of hair. A tart taste comes into the tongue everytime the pulse comes back: “I once read about water cremation, and it was beautiful.” (2019)





Surgery for Boska
The wetness of your touch, the inside of your mouth. (2015 prototype)


MOVING & STILL IMAGE


1k Flowers: Spinning Faster Than The Room
Album artwork, moving album artwork and accompanying animations. Released on Martin HossbachKompakt. (2020)



AV performance with Hydropsyche
Stills from live visuals for Hydropsyche. Composing on modular and analog synthesizers, Hydropsyche explores evolving polyrhythmic melodies and composition within a pre-defined tonal structure. They are intertwining in a live performance with a distorted, twitching botanical bacchanalia. (since 2019)




MESS
Artwork for the club night Mess at OHM, Berlin organised by Hyperaktivist. (since 2018)




We All Come From A Place
Visuals for a collection of sustainable fashion by Pat Guzik featuring illustrations by Mateusz Kolek & music by For you Katrina. Premiered at Centre Stage Asia in Hong Kong. (2018)





Ourobora Dissected
Excerpt from a video piece created for the collaborative immersive exhibition Ourobora (with Teri Varhol and Jon Eirik Boska). (2018)

Ourobora paraphrases the ancient symbol of a serpent swallowing its tail, representing wholeness, infinity, eternal return, immortality and self-birth. Ourobora devours symbols and icons through herself. She lets us peak into the multiverse through the center of which runs a matriarchal coup and establishment of equilibrium. At the beginning of this new end is the arrival of metapunk and rebirth of androgyny.





Frost: Pyramiden
Live visuals for AV performance in Pyramiden, a long-abandoned Russian settlement in the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard with the Norwegian electronic duo Frost. Performed in the old auditorium and temporarily resurrecting the ghost town, live visuals were created from photographs taken by the singer's grandparents, Herta Grøndal and Leif A. Grøndal, who documented the society living in Pyramiden from the 1960s to the 1990s. (2012)
