SCHLAF

The starting point of these works was the pure documentation of sleep by means of self-portraits. This led to the idea of using the unconscious movement during long term exposure for my work and drawing pictures with the body. After some test series I intervened in the process to change the basic conditions. Timing, various initial poses before falling asleep and the changes in the image details led to results that went beyond the documentation. Giving up control for a new aesthetics beyond the limitations of consciousness. Stories that arise directly from the depths of sleep.
