As long as I can remember I wanted to design, create and multiply with existing material, goals and borders.

Collecting and changing
Use what you got! Everything is done already and most of the time pretty good! I love to collect, arrange and work with it.

I want to merge, emerge and submerge your feelings, thoughts and vision... cause an environment where there is no place to hide... taking you by the hand and drag and push you into it...

Good Cop/Bad Cop
I always see everything ‘double’. Like the ‘Open’ sign, I’m aware of the fact that there is ‘Closed’ on the other side of it. Binary! No sweet without the sour... yes and no, before and after, left and right etc. I like to explore the spaces in between.

I want you to be comfortable, but at the same time I want to pull you out of that zone.

Considering - Confronting
