"My part-time job as a creative thinking teacher also helps me to soak the freshness of the kid’s view on the world. This leads me to not taking anything too serious, seeing the world's funny face and being open to exploring reality as much as I can. In my art I often want to make viewers interact with my artwork, and oppose the classic museum attitude of «don’t touch, don’t come close». I allow the viewer to touch, to smell, to manipulate artwork and so on."
