In his work Maurits Boettger questions our perception of time and space. He deconstructs information carriers such as light, sound, and air, and through targeted interventions creates changes in perspective to help the observer become aware of his own perception. Boettger treats time as his medium. In a playful manner he manipulates cosmic, biological and physical timepieces, allowing time to be experienced in distinct forms. His works are shown as video, apparatuses, installations or through interactive applications.
