The multi-media work My Intimate Mash Up consists of four parts: a video work, a piece of music, a luminous object and a text work in the form of a folder. The starting point of the multi-part work is the porn film "The Devil in Miss Jones" and the horror film "The Exorcist" from the 70s. The work refers to an obsession in which sexual and religious, horror and desire mix. The video work My Intimate Mash Up Exorcycle shows two film stills of the respective protagonists Regan from "The Exorcist" and Miss Jones from "The Devil in Miss Jones", in an almost identical pose. Printed and mounted back to back on a black pole against a black background, the two stills are set in motion again by a rotating motor and filmed again. 

The video work and the light object (see next link) are accompanied acoustically by a newly composed soundtrack from the title melodies of the respective films. 

In the video, the two protagonists perform a "revolving dance" choreographed to the rhythm of the piece of music. The speed of the movement makes the two images flow into the unrecognisable until the tempo decreases and the rotating portraits of the protagonists become visible for a brief moment. The moment of rotation causes the statics of the images to tilt - as if the portraits would only fall into their respective ecstatic poses through rotation.
