"We live in a connected world, where inspiration comes from our surrounding, whether it is emotions, the physical environment, people. It is a constant feed, and I try to be a translator. My work ranges from paintings to immersive interactive installations and the pursuit of new languages through technology. A lot of my work revolves around the observation of patterns, imaginary landscapes and how the human presence interacts in it."
