  • I am interested in a range of media. My works are based on the contradictory concepts that arise when objects lose their fixed-ness; swapping their positions and values, as can be seen in the common mechanisms of comparison, sarcasm, satire and paradox.

    My work starts with an observation of the common grounds and differences between two ideas, spaces or objects. Following this, he engages with these characteristics by combining, reversing or comparing them, and highlights the arising phenomena. These hybrid media are intended to communicate with spectators in a form that is familiar and unfamiliar at the same time.
