My work is accessible in a universal way via its wit and mischief. It is grounded in genuine experimentation of the core mechanisms of motion and time-based art. I go to the heart of every question and start from zero, reinventing core premises with my own perspective. My Non Stop Stop Motion works reinvent a contemporary expanded cinema and deal with the poetic mechanics of persistence of vision. My works with everyday objects (shoes, brooms, pots etc.) deal with social paradoxes and let us see a familiar world from a different perspective.
