CV

From a young age, I was interested in motion picture, particularly computer graphics and animation. During high school, I began teaching myself various techniques and soon this interest formed into VJing. We founded a formation called Illuvision and created live visuals for concerts, parties, theater and dance performances. This is where my interest developed in moving beyond the flat screen and to connect projected light with spatial forms, spaces and architecture, leading to experiment with projection mapping.

Meanwhile, between 2008 and 2014, I studied new media arts at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna (die:angewandte) and the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK), where communication techniques through new media tools became prominent. I was interested in the boundary between the real and the virtual, and what tools or even complete spaces we could create to establish new communication structures. Structures that go beyond the usual patterns, where the human being, the viewer, and the viewer's perception play a central role.

Between 2015 and 2023, as a freelancer, I mostly focused on designing events, exhibitions and museums: visual design, interactive installations, and immersive and multimedia content, 2D and 3D animations as well as projection mapping.

The central element of my work has always been light. Creating with light essentially takes human perception as its foundation and builds on it. Vision is, on one hand, the conversion of visible light into neural signals in the brain, and on the other hand, the interpretation of this information according to human logic and its framework. There are preconceptions that guide our functioning and thinking, but as soon as our senses experience something unexpected, we open up a new channel of communication. I research these communication channels outside our ingrown patterns. In my work, besides manipulated light sources, I also like to use mirrors, exploring their possibilities to create image, form and space.

In 2015, I begin to teach projection mapping techniques at UdK Berlin, and currently, I am lecturing as part of the light art curriculum at MOME. I currently live in Budapest, I am a member of the International Kepes Society and the Lighthouse Art Association.
