My work is a mirror, which narrates personal story while breaking constructs of traditional mediums. Finding and building relations between the individual and artwork is a driving force when creating. I constantly search for unconscious forms when interpreting my surroundings. Abstract forms are born from reinterpreting realistic ones and with ambiguity they tell universal stories, which are dependent on oneâ€™s personal narrative.
Game, as social extension of brain activity, and Play, as associated complex behavior, are concepts fundamentally related with every creative process. The focus of my artistic research, is to raise the mind's gaming nature to the level of conscious awareness by creating artworks, which are performative art games. Using sound as the main communicating medium, my engaged performers interact with dynamic audiovisual systems.

Here are myths created by Mass Media. Gods, if you will, that change the way we perceive the world around us. These myths seep into our consciousness and possess us. It mounts us much like a rider and his horse. This is how we travel through the network, physically linking ourselves to the sacred paths laid out by the myths of the media, and it is these paths that remain invisible. Myth of the Masses gives us a glimpse into the ritualistic space of media.
