“My work includes photography and photographic installation, considering the exhibition as a time to reflect upon the connections between photography, time and reality. The installations explore the perception of photography as a tool for editing time constructed in the exhibition space. The movement of the viewer is connected to looking at the work and is carefully considered. My practice deals with formal observation in the everyday constructs of life. The places depicted in the photographs are defined as invisible, and contain a form of obstruction that reveals the policing of space. Although my research is about the political use of the landscape and the controlling of space and architecture, it also self reflects on the medium of photography as a tool to police looking itself.”
