MA work

Electrocolour | Standby Light's Universe

Electrocolour: Designed to be purely functional, electronic circuits stay hidden in a white plastic shell. Fascinated by these encrypted complexities, I worked on a technique which enables me to print with electricity. I created a visual language, an X-ray-like image to communicate the electronic object`s inside to the outside. 

Standby Light's Universe: I am fascinated by moments in everyday life which are positioned between technology and the wilderness. I illustrate connections between electronic objects and ancient orientation systems – stories about wild relics in highly urbanised environments.
