Humanity has witnessed the Industrial age, followed by an Information age and now we are privileged to have the opportunity to enter an age of Inspiration — the ‘Third I’ with its boundless possibilities and potential, more than we ever thought possible. You and I can ask what is it that drives our civilisation? Is it our instinct for survival, a yearning for stability or maybe even a desire for mastery over the environment for better (or, unfortunately, in some cases, for worse)? Direction on an individual and on a societal level can often be determined by what inspires us the most and I believe that much of what drives us forward is Inspiration.
With the decline of institutional structures and specialisations, the projects we create as individuals are becoming ever more important and point to a sustainable future. A major phenomenon that has emerged in recent years — the open source movement — is a key enabler for creative individuals and it acts as a driving force to accelerate progress. I firmly believe that by combining the insight and talent of the individual with the infinite pool of open source we are creating something extraordinary and when we look back from some point in 2100 the open source movement will be recognised as an essential component in the march towards exponential change, providing the means for unique projects that will write the history of the future. Now it is up to each of us to seize the opportunity to explore, to create and to reach beyond the stars and in so doing inspire not only those around us but future generations.
Mandelbrot set as a meassure to inspire
The core method of intelligence is in actual patterns formation and recognition of the same. I believe that Universe is pure intelligence, and we all play some part in it. Our creations as Artists, because I believe that we are all artists, open the door to infinite dimensions, expanding our internal space towards higher awareness.

Artist statement - introduction
The core aspect of my practice in the last few years is the zoom in and zoom out, I used to dream, I still dream and record those dreams where the planet becomes so distant that it represents a dot, in the following moment it becomes infinite as I become a dot. Everything is relative to the context which makes the whole picture, I am fascinated by the world of cells, atoms, quarks, gluons, on and on into the microcosm of forms/patterns that reflect the macrocosm equaly mysterious. We live in beetween but are governed by both, we constantly zoom in and zoom out through time, history, space, perspectives. Likewise, our cultural and historical inheritance is composed of cells of idealism, visions, and innovation, fueled by imagination and knowledge. I believe that this zoom in and zoom out process is the universal impulse towards understanding, awareness of history, but at the same time it is holding the vitality of a mysterious, indescribable awe before the pulse of the time within and around. It is in this spirit of awe that I am standing with one foot exploring the intersection of myth, history, philosophy, science and with the other, observing, my stream of consciousness, abstractions of thoughts, and futurism tapping upon the truth deeply sitted within while learning about it externally, again a zoom in and zoom out. Ultimately I think that science and technology will reach the point of singularity with art, which in turn will result into yet another cognitive revolution (the first was the invention of fire, mythologically seen as a story of Prometheus which is very important with my almost subconscious treatment of water and fire) but now we each hold this fire in our hands. Technology is constantly influencing and changing the way we interact with material existence, materials we use and also with each other, and I believe that we have to keep pace with these changes through fostering our human values, igniting each other’s imagination, knowledge and supporting authenticity, in other words everyone should become their own Prometheus that spreads the “fire” through internet and continues the primordial impulse that dictates the trajectory that our genetics first adopted.
