About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To grow outside myself.

ABOUT ME

I am currently studying textile design and am interested in all elements of design and of various art practices. I practice in the mediums of textiles and fashion design, film photography, creative writing. I am always curious about new ways of seeing and interpreting our existence through various methods.

I like to find myself amongst foreign elements that lead way to the greatest explorations and discoveries.

Interests

I am interested in subtle beauty and the delicate nature of existence. The Other and the unknown has always fascinated me.

Photography,literature, poetry, fashion and textiles, architecture and travel are amongst the most fascinating for me.

A few of my favorite authors include Leo Tolstoy, Franz Kafka, Fyodor Dostoyevski, Albert Camus, Anais Nin, Sylvia Plath, Boris Pasternak, Roland Barthes, Gaston Bachelard, Ryszard Kapuscinski.

Amongst my favourite directors are Terrence Malick, David Lynch, Park Chan-Wook, Xavier Dolan, Steve McQueen, Lars Von Trier.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Driving through the moonland, deep in the Indian mountains. The night is calm, we are weary, delusional from many hours of travel. Retiring from out car, feet hitting gravol, looking up and discovering that the Universe has wrapped you in a blanket of stars. Illuminating all, they hung so closely, dissolving any barrier that we though had existed.
