Personal Quote:

[on Events in a Cloud Chamber (2016)] "I find this stuff more inspiring, more future-looking than anything going on today in the art or film world. It's like ghost stories - so many missing links, mysterious artworks, lost films. But I'm not trying to be nostalgic, just trying to look to the past to find inspiration, because there were so many directions started and never finished." See more »
