About the writing: ‘It is in the nerve of a moment an epiphany can create a oblique cut into reality. In order to illuminate this vision I write, while thoughts and ideas manifest and carve deeper by the adventure of the writing itself. To be not taken over by logical and semantic preparation I respond to echoes of the unconscious. In this way, progressing somewhat blindly, it demands for sensorial improvisation and intuition to become a fundamental aspect. 
Thus, paradoxical with distrust in languages capability to express, exploring different perceptive dimensions which most probably can not be said in words. Searching for the closest possible rendition of the sensorial impression. Attempting to understand self an how self relates to its surrounding as if the body does not distinguish itself from it. In a similar way creating a sense of displacement that allows the boundaries between writer, reader and character to be dissolved. For the process of writing to become life itself rather than telling a story.’
