An architect by education I am currently working in the field in between art and architecture with a focus on photography, locative art and visualisation, dividing my time between Berlin and London.

While looking at photographs we are confronted with an exact replication of a moment we haven’t had a chance to capture up to this detailing ever before. Photographs create memory by reproducing visual experience and like with any other translating medium, there is always a transfiguration process involved, while translating they are changing reality.
In order to go back to a more original experience and state of memory, I started to disfigure the taken images by blurring their shapes horizontally and vertically according to the architectural organisation of the underlying object until only a diffuse and abstract image appeared, one closer to the images I had in my mind than coded into millions of bits and bytes of information.
In a second process of controlled remembering the photographs were again reworked on by exposing parts of it recalling a detailed memory turning them into focus, like the fragments of a building as bits of memory. As a result of the different treatments, the dimension of time manifests itself inside the pictures, letting the line of sight follow varying rhythms, from the fast directional blur at one point to the static observation of details at another.

The visualisation of architecture has been a constant task since my studies as an architect; during my time as a student I worked not only on my own projects but also for offices rendering presentation images. Most of these images are always bound to non-disclosure agreements and therefore not presented here. Visualising architecture is generally a more challenging task than just rendering a design object or a vehicle, because of it being always situated in a context and environment that has to be presented in an equally acceptable fashion. I therefore set myself the task of rendering architecture every now and then in my spare time to improve my rendering skills with the results being presented here.
I mainly work with AutoCAD for two-dimensional drawings, Rhinoceros for two- and three-dimensional forms and 3d Max for the final modelling, texturing and lighting with VRay as a rendering engine, although being also educated in Maya, VectorWorks and FormZ. Read Less
