MAIN QUESTION: How can I give meaning to my work?

A personal report on my research and practice


Introduction: I have been making video work for over the past years. But what is it that I do and in what art movements and disciplines do I find similarities? What can I learn from the way these artists give meaning to their work? In this thesis I am going to explore some of my works and the common ground in this work. I will look at other artists (mostly in minimal music, abstract expressionism and experimental film/abstract or abbsolute cinema) and hope to come to set up a framework for a method for my work.
