“Some of the reoccurring themes in my works are physical boundaries and material limitations as well as violence in personal-sexual and socio-political contexts. As someone who grew up in the nineties, dramatic technological changes unfurled simultaneously with my personal advances towards the brink of manhood. These parallel occurrences – sexual yearnings, manual labor and mechanical innovations – are interlocked.”
