Without a pre-determined direction in mind, I try to form a new and surprising reality and to present an unusual visualization. I search for a unique viewpoint, seeking to expose a challenging aesthetics in mundane, the familiar strange and strange known. By doing so I'm trying to bridge the gap between the concealed and the revealed.
