” Experimentation and change is part of my work process and I often go back on works years later to adjust them to new ideas. I work on many projects simultaneously. Also, I have an interest in journalism and interviewing subjects. Childhood events continue to inspire me. Our family has been driven apart by the armenian Genocide which I want to research. Music, cinema and architecture are two recurring motifs throughout in my work.
Yes, my worldview is fragmented. But my need and will to categorize and order adds to my need to understand people. Accordingly, for me art is not a singular event, not a lonely effort, but it is a lot about working together, structuring, organizing and narrating. “

” I applied to titanik with the project Motivational Speech Archive. It was started by me in January 2016 and consists of mostly fictional motivational speeches that I have extracted from movies and TV shows. They are collected on various social media platforms and can be shared, listened to and used by others. I want to know, has the meaning of these speeches shifted after they have been ripped from their place in a narrative, a storyline? Cinema can hold such great power over its viewers, and sometimes its stories seep over into real life. What do these motivational speeches feel like in their abundance, what do they become? Are they suspended? Are they, at their core, a positive influence or do they become oppressive in their simplicity? “
