Experimentation and change is part of my work process and I often go back on works years later to adjust them to new ideas.
I work on many projects simultaneously. Also, I have an interest in journalism and interviewing subjects. Childhood events continue to inspire me.
My armenian family was ripped apart by the atrocities in the Ottoman Empire one hundred years ago.
Music, psychology, cinema and architecture are recurring motifs in my work and research throughout.
Yes, my worldview is fragmented. But my need and will to categorize and order adds to my need to understand people.
Accordingly, for me art is not a singular event, not a lonely effort, but it is a lot about working together, structuring, organizing and narrating.
