A recurring theme of my work
is to bridge the concepts of
transport media and information
containers. The information container
portrayed in cyanotypes
and books, contained through a
shipping container and placed
in the inner harbour of Cologne.

While mass media only reports on the shipping industry when
accidents occur, to me the global logistics industry seems to be a
perfect representation of the internet.
