"What I feel is the curse of all those who have only half a talent; it is like a man who leads you along a dark corridor with a light and just when you are in the middle of it the light goes out and you are left alone."
– Ludwig Wittgenstein

"But desire, too, has its ghosts."
– Egon Schiele


Once upon a time, under a different name, Dross was an artist associated with the Vienna Secession, similar in subject matter, style, recognition, etc, to Egon Schiele. These days, he's taken to filmmaking, and is likely to be recording something at just about any given moment. Most of the footage he collects eventually turns into bizarre (& often rather sexual) short films. They're not horror movies, exactly, and yet, somehow... they're all horror movies.

  • Rib Hollow - An immersive multimedia art installation (available autumn '17 only in EW01). See a preview of related images if interested.
  • Creep - Yes, he's watching.

Aus der Hand frißt der Herbst mir sein Blatt:
wir sind Freunde.
Wir schälen die Zeit aus den Nüssen und lehren sie gehn...
