My studio is a second home.

What I do in one sentence: While shifting between digital and physical mediums, I tell stories about bizarre aspects of this transformation through fictional characters.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: I get bored too easily and have an urge to move forward from where I am currently standing.

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: I mostly crave to have extra knowledge of some subject but to establish that I need more time. I approach my artworks similar way – I set a technically new goal that I want to reach at the end of each project. I dream constantly of making an interactive and programmed artwork, where the viewer can really go into the artwork and experience its aspects with different senses. Although the experience needs to remain private and comfortable to the visitor.

Why I do what I do: I bring the views and concepts to the visual form through challenging myself and seeing how they respond to the room and visitors. This process keeps me positively looping after each project to have an urge to start the next one again.

Artists, I have on my watch list (and why): I follow some Instagram accounts, who share great exhibitions views from any place on earth. But currently, I have on my mind some 3D and video artists like Jon Rafman, Molly Soda, and Nicole Ruggiero.

I am afraid of feeling too comfortable.

I know that a piece is finished when I have no time to pick on the tiny details anymore.

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: The thought of the ways I could be buried has always given me a shivering feeling. Probably its for the best to let the others decide.
