"I feel that art is a process where one uses any form of expression in order to TRY (with capital letters) to make some sense of the world that surrounds him using a line of reasoning allied to criticism and the knowledge acquired in his life experiences. Its even hard for to justify a final work as art. I sometimes feel that art only happens in the process. Or that its at its most manifest state in the process."

As the artist tells the story of each of his Space-time Characters, in the hopes of freeing them from their perpetual cycle in space-time, we witness as how, in fact, he is closer and closer to them, until, at one point, he takes their places.
