I like to push the limits of my medium and work in unconventional ways, which also means that I often create new tools and methods. A variety of intentions may come into play as the work is being conceived, but in the end, success is dependent on how it is received by those who experience it. Do they look at it? Are they happy to have seen it? Do they tell their friends to see it? Did they learn something new?
