I am an artist, composer and curator. I'm aiming to create non-directional works with a sense of timelessness. Without the need to be somewhere, the works are free. They are allowed to be themselves, allowed to be anywhere and nowhere.
My works almost have no ending and no beginning. They are part of a loop, just like myself. Everything I create is part of a continuous process. And any idea I have, any work I present, is just a small part of a larger work. And so each individual work also functions as a departure point toward some other idea. From there I continue these artistic thoughts until I cannot.
I create sound works because I want to confront silence. These sound ideas are like objects that I transform into something completely new, or into familiar objects that are being described in a different way. And present these works with light or video installations, which I create so that observers can sit in the spaces I’ve constructed and experience themselves and the universe around them, hopefully in a thoughtful way. How listeners experience my works is up to them, of course. In time, the works hopefully become clearer.
My artworks are not sponges for humanity’s problems. They have their own meaning: themselves.
