Live coded audio piece — Their solidity is mere illusion (2020–2021)
·
A live coded audio piece performed at EYE Filmmuseum in June, 2021.

The project explores the nomadic qualities of language: nomadic in the sense that the recorded voices exhibit no desire for fixity and authority. All demonstrate the in-between-ness of languages. Where is language? Where does it lie in the body? In our mother tongues, our father lands? The words together form rhythmic soundscapes, controlled through code — it takes parts of words, repeats, blends together.

Words by: Ágota Kristóf, Victor Hugo, Emine Özdamar, Trinh T. Minh-hà, Jenny Hval, Google translate and myself.
Publication — Redesign of Life: a user’s manual by Georges Perec (2020)
Georges Perec wrote Life: a user’s manual by drawing a 10x10 grid—each square of the grid representing a room in the fictional apartment block 11 Rue Simon-Crubellier—and using a knight's tour to navigate through the building. The numbers on the side of the page refer to the grid on the cover, which can be used to determine where the chapter is taking place. Perec set some other writing constraints for himself when writing the book, but did not always adhere to his own rules. The design is a balance of his methodology and his rule-breaking.

Installation and publication — (Tracing) choreographies (2020)
(Tracing) choreographies is a project exploring the physical relation between metal and the person bending the metal. I suggest that the act of bending metal becomes a dance—a choreography: stepping over, under, reaching, bumping into, picking up—bringing my body to its limits, feeling my muscles after every turn. The metal piece that remains is an archive of the dance.
