Messages, exchange, the contrast of near and far in the simultaneity of cultures: With this thematic focus, I have approached my work. These questions have inspired me here:
What influence on my work has my background, or the fact of living in Europe? How do I design my work in a communicative way? How does my approach changed in relation to the art of the other? And how my art will change in the box, along with the work of my art partner?
