ARTIST STATEMENT

Home is inside us…  My Dream Home - a short film (with or without sound and music) is a personal surrealistic playful journey it is an experience as well as a structure.

This home is for my dreams, dreams  of the real and imagined, the past , present and future directions.

My dreams are my personal home. 

My dreams are also my hopes for the future which I want to live in,

The home of my dreams is the earth and I would like to try my best to share and treat every part of it with the creative imagination and respect it is due.
