„Habit“ (everyday life) is a series of site-specific interventions and installations.
Public spaces (and semi public spaces) are selected for their architectural, historic or social qualities and then explored. The transformed location becomes an extension of the pictorial space.

habit13.04.2006 - 15.04.2006private apartment, Vienna
A man of sixty-eight years is lying on an unmade bed masturbating. The room, filled with packing cases and furniture in disorder, is in a beautiful house overlooking Cape Town; the man has just taken possession of it. Throughout his life, whenever he has moved, he has found that until he masturbated in a new dwelling he cannot think of it as home. His wife urges him to get on with it.
