Description of Style

the focus of attention is the concept of treating multimedial symbol languages - including a redesign of its syntax and grammar - concerning language, images and sound/music as equal symbol systems. in the mid-eighties the (acoustic) sample was a central theme of the works (analysis of rhythmic and melodic qualities "found" noises, semantic and connotation, dissolving samples away from its meaningful context, etc.), then in the late eighties the interest moved on to the "architecture" in which the extracted samples transformed to new contents. since the early nineties, except acoustic sampling, increased digital work with language and visual samples (real moving image) in the form of computer animation and digital videolayering. since the production with the new digital media is no longer genre-, but project-oriented, adequate structures in organisation and content have to be created for each new plan. the design of such "multifunctional classification systems" is the focus of the works since the early nineties and receives the status of "actual creative act." however, for the purpose of verification/falsification the created applications of such structures (i.e. the artistic products) are consequently nothing more than intellectual "waste products".
