My work is a kind of video symphony made in consideration of the relevance of space to sound. I make music with images and sound from videoclips, rearranged into small and neat bits and pieces. These become visual notes, which are associated with a specific space and depend on the fact that these sounds could function as a physical, cultural and psychological mark of a given situation.

Each sound, instead of being artificially produced, is extracted from actual situations and thereby entertains a connection with reality. In this respect my videos resemble a kind of fragmental documentary. By editing and adjusting these fragmental videos, I provide them with temporal rhythms, which assume the role of rearranging reality, creating a `variation of reality`.
