My work is broadly concerned with national identities and the role landscape and rural communities plays in their formation. I am primarily interested in the construction of cultural heritage, the physicality of imaged communities and its semiotics. The starting point for my practice is the parallel between how one constructs a photograph and how a national identity is framed. Photography, research, 3D printing and artifacts are used to document the ambiguity of preconceived ideas versus the expectation of the viewer. I am primarily interested in the construction of cultural heritage, the physicality of imaged communities and its semiotics. I aim at creating a space in which the viewer is forced to re-examine his position concerning a phenomenon or concept.
