Im looking for the humbling feeling in trying to make sense of everyday life. 

In my work, I engage with people in front of a camera. I like to set up scenarios where a string of situations with the camera acts as its own force of direction, playing out one after the other in time. I view these situations as “in-between” the camera image and lived experience, and try to find modes of depiction where the camera and the image become interlinked with another; with the themes and conflict developments; with the characters; with the film.

ROULETTE – 8″ documentary short (2016)

Man

ROULETTE is a playfull exploration of the dramatic potential in public spaces. With its inspiration emanating from ´the act of passing by´, the film illustrates movement in contrast to something else, something static and deeply inhumane.”
