If you could use one word to describe yourself, what would it be?
Your house is burning down - you have to save THREE things. What are they?
Depending if I was outside, I'd leave it all, but if inside, my tent,
laptop and coffee machine.
What was your number one highlight of your residency in Armenia?
In this case (I would say for me), it was the starting point on our
new project and the subjective conclusions towards the end, everything
through our dialogue, it changed in different environments. When you
different disciplines, this becomes the real test, it brought about
our last kinetic work that self-destructed. When people came to our
show (Yerevan), over a period of our Kinetic installation slowly
destroyed, the work was intended to be ephemeral, but during the show
some people started running up to it, trying to save and reattach the
grade) students to deconstruct it, recycling the materials and to
reconstruct it into something new.
Name one thing you learnt about yourself whilst at your residency in
During my residence, I discovered the Dutch art/artist scene and
I've been look-out in London for a place to start...

What do you like to read?
Without wanting to be too vague and difficult, books, (when at work)
I like to look on the edge of things. But ask me again in 5 years time.
painting/drawing with acid and pioneer of auto-destruction, but
without giving away too much you should check out his current stuff.
But choosing ‘one’ is difficult because I recently saw a couple of
artists that really made me say… WOW!, when it comes to viewing their
work I take on a Neanderthal manner by simply just wanting to
experience the aesthetics, walking around there works. Later, I
usually question there technique, like Alan Vegas' combination of
Music and Punk, Jean Tinguely MetaMatic machines, a series of
sculptures that play on the notion of physics, I questioned his use of
medium and motion, his works are in a way, playfully kitsch and
nostalgic. And Anish Kapoors temporary works in the Hyde park, while
as if not even trying, they seem to beam energy, they move like live
paintings…just stand in front of one. All three are very are
different, but all artists have played a major role in the
experimentation of my current work.

it was to be my future residence (squat) but recently when I returned,
it had just begun demolishment (so if I find another place similar, a
large warehouse with no limits).
