Change Your Life is an ongoing international project, examining the representation of speech and issues of hope: how do the circumstances and issues of society determine and express the personal status of the person. Change Your Life is asking for the basic needs and demands of the audience and works with the individual potential of the viewers imagination of his/hers better life.

History - Change Your Life started 2004 as a video project discussing conditions of contemporary society and declaring several degrees of well-being, beauty, and belief in order to show up structures of suggestive speech. The audience was addressed directly through suggestive speech, impelled to change their life for the better. (the young photographer - presented at FILE Festival in Sao Paulo 2004 and MAF 2005 Bangkok)

Change Your Life will be continued. At the moment we are developing a various of different installation environments to explore an artificial expression of the issue.
