Should I Forget

My body of work operates across disciplines and explores the concepts of time and memory. It is an audio-visual experience where I move in time on the traces of the moments. It is a travel in my consciousness with a melody in my mind. I want my work to encapsulate mobility and illusion of time, as well as duration and to reflect my personality through my singing performance while I travel between sceneries. I manipulate particular moments with visual effects in order to break their reality. I draw my inspiration from the mythological, philosophical, historical, and contemporary stories, concepts and symbols that refer to timelessness and eternality in the physical environment.

I dream and live after the end of time.

I dream and die before the beginning of time.

Standing on the edge of a cliff,

I get shivers from a song playing in my dreams.
