My artistic approach revolves around non-renewable energies that surround me. Instead of trying to illustrate these urban vibrations, the object itself which radiates this stress becomes the actual subject of my research. Highlighting these recycled items, I try to bring out their metaphysical energy which connects them with human activity.
