"Big change happens in my life once in a while .... where to live and what to do for instance...
I am urged to know new things and would like to travel around the world. People, society, culture, history, today and future are key words for me to be creative. Looking at something new and being influenced does not mean that I am losing my identity. It is a beginning of being a par of the world really! Art work is a kind of method for me to observe my surrounding and comment thoughts on those.
I am sorry to answer in a terribly simple way. But that is where my art starts really.. There is no limit in terms of using technology and materials today. That is why I would like to select them carefully in order to accomplish my art project. . "
