I’m attracted to things I can’t give words to. My driving force lies in a curiosity and a will to understand. In order to understand, I narrate. It’s a subjective investigation, focusing on the subtle, the unexpressed and the distorted. I’m interested in traces left by human activity - impressions as signs of elapsed time.

In this work I have looked at actions of compulsive saving, where things’ area of use or value is of no importance, where everything is equally important, equally valuable. I’m fascinated by what is lacking in discrimination and is controlled. I operate between the subconscious and the conscious.
