“Giving style” to one’s character – a great and rare art! It is exercised by those who see all the strengths and weaknesses of their own natures and then comprehend them in an artistic plan until everything appears as art and reason and even weakness delights the eye.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

I mostly work in video art, and existential themes infiltrate my work.

I consider myself an artist rather than a philosopher. I have learnt a personal lesson — the danger philosophy poses in hindering and inhibiting my mind as artist. However, the inexplicable benefits of philosophy, the clarity and enhancement of thought it brings, are absolutely indispensable to me, and as an artist I think this enhances my work by freeing me up to express it more precisely.
