"When talking about my production practice in general, I can talk about the different experiments I engage in within the 'simultaneous production model'. The most decisive feature of the imaginary universe I create by using different techniques and materials such as painting, photography, sculpture, installation, video and objects of natural origin together is that it has a multi-disciplinary weave. I believe that the "sense of omnipresence" created by this mode of expression/production opens a liberating space for my works."
