I am a lens-based artist focusing on processes of human interference within natural landscapes. My current work, the Architecture of Spectacle, examines purpose-built temporary structures for extreme sport events.
A series on the Mississippi River was recently published in Das Magazin, the illustrated weekly of the Swiss newspaper Der Tagesanzeiger. In 2016, I was commissioned by the Swiss government to portray official government buildings for the publication and exhibition Bundesbauten - Die offizielle Architektur der offiziellen Schweiz. My works, mainly large-scale photographic prints and video installations, have been featured in various solo and group shows across Europe, such as the public Art Festival AAA in Zürich (The Mockup series) and the f-stop Festival for Photography in Leipzig.
Currently I am based in Karlsruhe. I studied Media Art at the University of Art and Design / ZKM Karlsruhe from 2003-2009, and graduated from the MFA at Glasgow School of Art in 2010. I teach photography in the Department of Architecture at ETH Zürich, and for the past six years taught Media Art at the University of Art and Design / ZKM Karlsruhe.
