I believe that our rationality is bounded by what we have already known. Although, everything that is known needs to be tested and put into development. I seek to trust my senses and to understand depths of various topics, and to expand them in communicative direction. I find charm in colours and shapes, and I dwell to work in different mediums to analyse the forms and mechanics of newness.
