Mark
My artistic work revolves around the interfaces between the environments of humans and nonhuman beings and often negotiates these interrelations in the field of landscape. On the one hand, the works are in-depth research and, on the other, exercises of observation, which take place in photographic, cinematic-documentary or auditory form.

Living and working as an artist and nature conservation expert in Leipzig, Germany.
Meine künstlerische Arbeit dreht sich um die Schnittstellen zwischen der Umwelt von Menschen und nichtmenschlichen Wesen und verhandelt häufig diese Zusammenhänge im Feld der Landschaft. Zum einen handelt es sich bei den Arbeiten um eingehende Recherchen und zum anderen um Beobachtungsübungen, die in fotografischer, filmisch-dokumentarischer oder auditiver Form stattfinden.

Ich lebe und arbeite als Künstler und  Naturschutzexperte in Leipzig.
