He has written two sci-fi / fantasy novels that reveal an uncanny taste of the present. He makes his own miso and forages Uckermark county. He paints dreams, visions, plants and beings. His main tool is an industrial sewing machine. He currently gathers wood for his stove and prepares for liverpool biennale and some solo shows here and there. Tomorrow he will shovel earth and work on artifical networks for his installation art. He likes to go for walks in the woods of his mind.
