My work often revolves around serendipity, intuition and associations, with research interests in: WWII and the emergence of a youth demographic and youth marketing; diasporas and cycles; and the tension between the separation of our egos and the interconnectedness of everything. My intention is to implore people emotionally, as opposed to appealing to their mental and rational faculties, as a way to create a non-linear dialogue with the viewer.
