Designer Statement:
No intention intended. Intendedly no intention.
My design comes from posing simple questions; having conversations with myself through those questions; expressing my thoughts; thinking out loud; questioning one onto another. Questioning, not to get an answer, but to move to another question: and I work towards to approach to design – especially to approach ‘conceptual design’ that gives different experience and views in ordinary things.

My main questions of my journey starts from here:
• What is real? How to express a thing? How to express reality? – through reinterpretation or representation? Reinterpreted and represented: which one is true?
• How things relate each other? What is a meaning of contradiction and paradox of surroundings between what we see and what we know it is?
• What we see? How we see? What comes out?

Intuition: designer as artist – who seemingly doesn’t know what they are doing, but well not really.
Learning from the work; What to go & where to go is in the work; Work tells me where to go, work influence where to go... – Larry Bell, 2013
I can’t explain it (his works) using words; Knowing through making it; I don’t know what i am doing with my work. Later I knew what i was doing, but not really, you know. – Martin Creed, 2013
I follow my instincts, but in a disciplined way. – Roman Polanski
