Since 2010, he has also worked as video artist for several theatre productions of Felix M. Ott, creating the visuals shown on stage to support the piece. A short film “Emptylands” that he created with Felix M. Ott and Steffen Martin was also the base to a piece of Felix M. Ott, and also won the “Goldener Herkules” prize in Kassel in 2013.

Since 2012 his artistic work deals with the observation and use of moving image to fathom out the area between pure documentation and fiction.The credibility of images and how they create meaning is a central topic of his work.
