Why do you make art?
Making art is first and foremost a personal and creative process of research, questioning, suggesting, creating, and understanding the world. Everything else is a byproduct of that process.
What changes can art make to life?
In my own life it helps me to deal with everything else. For a possible audience I don’t know, but art and culture in general are part of what makes us humans and of what makes our society. The questions we ask and possibilities we create are what will shape both our physical world and also our inner experience of it. There are many kinds of art and I guess they can serve many purposes for many different people.
How would you characterize the time we live in?
A very difficult one where the whole world is trying to deal with an unprecedented pandemic and all the ripple effects it will create socially, politically and economically. It is very sad to see people dying and suffering. I have also seen a lot of kindness, altruism and innovation taking place. I hope we all can focus more on the bright side of humanity and head towards better times.
