The Series Otherland is about the aftereffects of traumatic life‐changing events. Its about sadness, and a feeling of alienation in this world. This is one of my central themes: How do we deal with the dark and heavy chapters of our past? How do they change us? What do we learn from? What remains? The images are often associated with texts (for example Insomnia) which i collect my book Gezeitenströme — which i hopefully soon will publish.
