Artistic Statement

The fascination with time and my own attempts to get a grip on it comes from an incapability to adapt to the contemporary Western conception of time. The present is a phase in the evolution from the past to the future - an interval in which everything is questioned. By re-questioning, re-thinking and re-formulating our plans, we feel the 'here and now' as an uncertain and undetermined time.
