Artist Statement

 

 

 

1. Multiplicity and mathematics: if numbers have such a high reputation, what be their opposite?  
2. Architecture: any sort of a world must be outlined.  
3. Baseball: it’s all about numbers.  
4. Humor, irony, and sinister sharpness: together at last!  
5. Science fiction: we believe in stories that take us nowhere.
6. Broken landscapes: a panorama to fiction and many other disruptions.
7. The absurd: we have to twist what we think is real.  
8. Repetition: it takes us further away from reality.
9. Amazing situations: they tend to split time. 
10. Language: the key to creating baffling new worlds.
