A year ago I posted this artwork ‘Intimasea’, combining my belly with a photo I took in the Bahamas. This work means a lot to me, because it’s the one that ‘brought me out there’. Your positive feedback encouraged me to further experiment with photomanipulation. At the time, my art was just a hobby. But then I left (or got fired - tomato, tomahto) my full-time underpaid marketing job in a startup, and could finally dedicate my time to what really made me happy. I found my passion and mission at the same time. Thanks to the support of my boyfriend, parents and part-time jobs, I’ve been able to live doing what I love since January 2018. In one year, I produced more photomontages than the previous five years. There are no words to say how grateful I am to all of you. With your invaluable support here on Instagram, I’ve been able to reach and inspire more people than I ever thought I would. My art appeared on TV, magazines, exhibitions. I’ve been invited to speak at the largest Adobe conference in Scandinavia in June (I am so excited but so terrified 😱). So yeah: THANK YOU SO MUCH YOU ARE AMAZING!!! ❤️🙏🏻❤️ If you happen to still be reading this (nowadays the attention span is like 1 second per post 😂) then I’d love to have your interpretation on ‘Intimasea’. For me, this work is a celebration of the human body and nature symbiosis. Our body is a landscape of feelings, a means to discover new people and travel to new places, a canvas for art (I love tattoos😁). Our body walks us to places, hugs people we love, eats tasty food, dances to music, create artworks.
P.S: I edited this photomontage to fit Instagram’s 4:5 ratio, in case you noticed it looked a bit different ☺️

My new short film 'Mindless Crowd' is online on Vimeo.
Please watch the full version. Link in bio.
»Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment. But you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet.«
(From 'The Matrix')
'Mindless Crowd' is a collage of drone footage combined with a historic voiceover from the 1960s. The film is examining the different patterns and formations which human civilization has shaped on the surface of planet earth. It therefore is using only one single perspective – the top view.
A film by Jacco Kliesch (2019)
Based on a speech by Alan Watts (*1915 †1973)
Edited entirely from stock footage.
