As a way of dealing with the complex world of today, I sympathize with the expressive techniques of magical realism as the literary genre. Through the careful selection of media, I tend not to immediately disclose my works as such, but rather present them as the everyday phenomena that lay at their core. Fantastical elements are smuggled through the universality of contemporary objects, habits and dogmas, as exposing or isolating them would automatically reduce their legitimacy relative to default reality. Therefore, I believe my works to be the result of when quiet, personal observations of strange facts coalesce with sensible fiction.
