As a philosopher I view my writings and art as tools to do research. My main question in relation to thinking and making is: What does it mean to be your body instead of having a body? My aim is to think of bodies in a non-medical, anti-capitalist way and look for other ways to experience our bodies. I draw my inspiration from great philosophers, writers and artists. A major inspiration for me is Metamorphoses by Ovid concerning the change of bodies, especially the figure of Daphne who changed into a laurel tree to escape violation. There’s also a strong social interactive dimension in my work, in the sense that I like to work with others to give them a voice of their own.
