My work joins in a research for the toughtlessness.

Economy of means of production which appears in the shape.

Sources of inspiration are situated in the contemporary and traditional production.

The planet is my ground.

Little in the style of an archaeologist not to the History but in search of the habits and customs of our time, I investigate the situations in their margins, I try to steal in the chinks of what exists.

The result of this approach is an unlimited curiosity because these "chinks" of the existing realities deploy in a fractale way.
