It is the concept of language that fascinates me most. I see it as a magic tool which can create new worlds, generate new ideas and concepts, and it does not matter whether or not they are illusory. The language of different ways of art expression provides an additional opportunity to touch the essence of things, to seize the inexpressible, to introduce the public to sheer experience. It has this incredible potential for transformation, and since I do not believe in any objective “me” or in “present reality”, I attempt to make it ever-new.
