The main concepts behind my sculpture are impossibility and childhood. As we grow older, we often forget about small things, and regress to childhood when such objects are presented in adulthood.

After filming the majority of the shots that we needed (at the time of writing, we were on day 3 of filming), we had to think about the editing of the film. This is a lot of things as one, because we have to think about the order, the size, how we are going to […]
