December 2019 I spent in a beautiful village of Macario Gomez, 20 km inland from Tulum, Mexico. It was a month long artist residence program at Xaaninna with almost no electricity, lots of candle light, forest magic, rooster calls and two other artists - Tove Dreinman and Yael Ben David (from Sweden and Israel). I needed to recharge my mind and soul at the end of a busy year. In 2019 I shot a new film (short comedy "The Robbery"), several sequences for the "Moon Cycles" documentary, attended film festivals for "The River of the Kukamas", got bitten by a giant dog in Siberia and survived to tell the story.

This residency not only helped me find work-life balance, but brought me back to photography. It's been a while since I devoted big chunks of time to these creative pursuits. Look out for the updates in various photo categories to see work from Mexico.

Now that the series is done, I can finally say that last year I made some sculptures for the TV-series "Anne with an E" under the supervision of Jacques Fortier and John Archbell. It was my first time working in this medium, learning on the job and developing my own style.

I had to make six different sculptures, as Jacques guided me along the process, coming up with the ideas for the poses. The fun part was to re-create these six sculptures a few more times - as film frequently needs copies and doubles of everything.
