By transforming and manipulating various sources of archival material, his work reflects upon the notion of a haptic proximity of contemporary media.

The director considers film as “a phallic conquerer that, folding in on itself, now flaccid deus ex machina, observes itself from the inside like a lysergic membrane that slowly founders between the folds of its own material”.

His most recent collaborations include the film editing for Aldo Tambellini's solo exhibition Black Matters, at ZKM Karlsruhe, Germany and is the artist for Chicago Film Archives’ 2018 Media Mixer.

He is the Founder and in charge of the programme of Fracto Experimental Film Encounter , held at ACUD macht neu, in Berlin.
