This is an introductory video, however more topics in detail will follow on a more or less weekly basis. The best Birthday gift for me this year would be if you subscribe to my channel and share this video among artists who might find this information useful.

Have an amazing week!
It was an honor to participate at the Research Festival ARTikulationen 2020 in KWDS KunstUni Graz, Austria with a new miniature project “Incentive”, which was my contribution to the format of “Intermezzo” / Songs without words – a nonverbal reflection of specific artistic research.
A special thanks goes to Denis Zhdanov for helping me create and produce this work.
