    this type of work is very Sisyphean since it made only with one materiel- the zip ties. with this very cold materiel I wanted to make something pure and magical. I wanted to make an organic creature that isn't organic in its essence.
    you said that this work is very provocative I am interested in understanding what is provocative in this piece in your eyes?

    • I like the idea of the zip ties being "cold materials." I think this piece is particularly provocative because to me zip ties represent imprisonment, restrictions, and limitations, and you've managed to create a piece that is very natural, fluid, and alive out of such cold and lifeless objects. The juxtaposition of the finished work of art and the smaller parts that make it up works very well and adds depth and room for interpretation.
