One of the most important aspects of creativity is for me the ability to enter my realizations into different contexts, the ability to build different meanings. Finding new areas of impact, new quality. Context based on the history or significance of a given place, context built through the neighborhood of other works, where another artist appears with his work – when the relationship between them and the new meaning through the combination become additional value.
