Over the last 2-3 years, I have been collecting images and videos as an inspiration for my creative work as well as for the pleasure of sharing them. I was obsessed by video art and its different manifestations. That obsession motivated me to dig into its history as well as to develop my own style of video images. All the artists featured on this blog are my teachers, my guides, and in some ways I can say that they are my heroes. All these researches helped me to create my ongoing relationship with the moving/still images, and I feel that I'm now moving on to an unkown place. I might still post here again, but I will do so on a more random way, not on a regular basis. I am currently working on other blogs, and I'll post the links here eventually...
I want to say thank you for following me here, as well as for you great comment and encouragement. I met some very interesting people through this blog and I really hope we'll keep in touch, no matter how.
