Multidisciplinary artist, award-winning composer and author.

Recipient of the 2021 New York City Artist Corps Grant



My work is an exploration of the human condition, investigating various aspects and relationships between history, culture and art. Everything is expressed through relationship. Color can exist only through other colors, dimension through other dimensions, and position through other positions that oppose them. I use objects, photography and video, and compose music for my projects. I see them all as a vocabulary of feelings, just in different languages.

The young fella on the right is my grandpa Carl who wrote a book in 1906, with the title On a Journey.

A beautiful travel guide through Austria, Switzerland, and Bavaria.

I always had the feeling he was nudging me, "Come on, Sport, make it a family tradition; travel a bit and then write about what came your way. " So, I did. Hope you like it, Grandpa, and thanks for the boost!
