"What brings meaning to one’s life? Is it beauty, divinity, masculinity or a spotlight? My work is an attempt to understand my relationship to others; my own search for belonging in a hyperdomesticated world. I look for deeper values within the surface of culture, in an attempt for a better understanding of more intrinsic human qualities. I am concerned with the relationship between the lust for admiration and the pursuit of empathy."
