I've been working with high technology equipment for many years. This equipment consists of various electronic elements with unique aesthetic qualities and textures which I call “personalities.” I started having ideas and visions of strange structures and their unique positioning on a two dimensional and three dimensional plane. During my lifetime electronics made a huge leap in advancement and development. The first time I have envisioned those elements in different form was at the age of ten. I didn't understand what it was but had a fierce desire to find out. This desire awakened my mind and pulled me into the world of high technologies leading me not only to pursue electronic engineering as a profession, but also use this language in my creative process. The creation of these art works allows me to "fall back into childhood," by playing and rearranging those pieces into a different aesthetic order.
