My images, whether graphic, photographic or holographic, are always experimental. They seek to challenge preconceived ideas, to comprehend the working of a process or a device, to verify, observe and analyse. My experiments are confrontations.

This attitude submits the production of images to study. Aestheticism is only a visual game. However, this experimentalism in art distinguishes itself by its ability to use the unexpected and by its opening to creative manipulations, accidents and thematic references. Practice is source of theories.
