With Space Time he presented a work dealing with digital synaesthesia and space-time-infrasturcture in 2016. By making time deviation audible time becomes experienceable.
In his post-internet installations called Hypothetische Maschinen animatronics recite a chopped narration from social media. The works give an unusual perspective on the culture of datafication.
