“Creative process is an endless process of learning that is twofold: 1. understanding technical features of fine arts medium, understanding operational system and the power of effect and finally knowing how to use it. 2. understanding the historical development and the background of desired medium. Going through the history of science, movie or literature with intention to discover all features of the medium, leads me to interesting random fragments of history in which I find obvious analogies with contemporary times. These help me understand and broaden the content of my work. Through my vision and comprehension of my current situation and relation towards the environment I live in, I reinterpret them and sometimes directly or indirectly actualize them.”
