I don’t really care if my work is considered art – it is what it is.
The objects are not created with a particular audience in mind – and certainly not with a particular market in mind. They are meant to help me gain a different perspective on the world, to gain at least minimal access to reality. For me, the preferred means of achieving this are juxtapositions and alienation effects.
