Director Statement

I work on the edge of video-art and cinematography exploring mythology in modern culture. My main aproach is perfromative interaction with culturaly important locations with futher reworking of collected material for recreating certain senses.
In present time developing different approaches of narrative video representation with live perfroming and co-interacting with music and sound scapes.
