Leonardo's Reflection

A person has climbed inside my body. His name is Leonardo and he’s currently sitting in my trachea, behind the vocal cords. He’s trying to figure out how everything works and how it relates to the world outside: How do the vocal cords produce sound? How does the blood circulate? And how did the fossilised coral reefs end up on the high summits of mountains?

The sound and video work The problem was developed around the notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci and Per Olov Enquist’s novel Nedstörtad Ängel. In my artistic practice, I explore how perception can be captured through sound, text and image, the inherent abilities and identities of a body, and how it’s possible for us to recognise our physical and conscious world as inseparable.
