Defining work as a process of self-exploration, the purpose of my work is to explore the universal (shared) and the particular (beliefs) within me, and thus think about what self actually is.
Currently, I use two "senses" to judge the authenticity of my work. One is a faint but absolute sense of "between two related states" such as stillness and movement, or life and death. The other is a sense of "things made visible". These are things such as soul, spirit or breath that cannot actually be seen, yet are present. When something I make activates both senses, then I feel it has succeeded.
