Abnegation and imprisonment into social constructions have been thinking’s theme interesting for me. For a substantial time I thought that I wanted to studied economics and finance to work on trying to construct an other currency.
Those questions have designed my approaches and imbued me with the idea of the arts as a proposition for policymaking. Idea that I am not able to embrace yet but that feel fair in my head and my ambitions.
Transforming the overwhelming unfairness onto a wide farce is my way to communicate and recall to positionnent and actions; the way to think and tell the story I aim to embrace: the one of social interactions messed up by Medias and Ideas and the one of education and environment_ the weak ones_ submissive to the changing permissive society of non-sense directed by superficial model in our lack of global century peace figures.
As my education had made me experienced, seeing is a chance only as discoveries lead to actions and that an in-action environment is the best to hope for our places; against passivity and for a scene of emancipated spectators.
La vie est belle!
