Osk works in different media depending on idea and subject, works find their channel. They often appear in the form of a video or video sculpture. But also paintings, photographs, performances, books, texts, film. I am interested in society and boundaries, visible and invisible, between inside-outside, private-public, human-nature, child-adult
