"I don’t look at a specific culture, but more at the parallels of rituals in various cultures. Being a product of my time the cultural phenomena that I feel intrigued by are already hybrids, like new religious movements. These tell me something about the subconscious currents of our society today. They are showing an attempt for cultural remaking opposing our mechanic world view and a search for an alternative to the rigid of secular thinking. I am interested in creating a more relational system that has the ability to redefine our coexistence with our environment."
