“There are three keywords which have fitted my artwork through my art praxis: humour, cut-up and some sort of nostaligia. I am interested in new-media art and I work mainly with video and sound. I have explored
this new-media art in a very basic way. In many of my latest work I have been using sampling to a large degree – using sound and video I find in second hand shops or on the web. I edit it and mix the sources together, so it becomes something completely different. I have often been taking the copyright issue very lightly. Another issue I sometimes deal with is gender roles”. http://www.rasmusalbertsen.dk/
