The artist about his works: “Doing something. The need for creation. The urge for making. Are working and creating and crave to make natural parts of human existence? Even the master of ready-mades and laziness Marcel Duchamp was working in secret. Contemporary human is occupied by working as busy as a bee.
But what about the results of the actions, the resulting forms? Is there any importance?”
