Artist’s statement

Questions? Questions? Questions? Every day we ask ourselves a multitude of different questions. Some of these are important, some are stupid. Perhaps the time spent asking these questions could be better spent actually doing something. Pressing questions questions the concept of questioning. Some questions can be understood only in a specific context, but many are universally accessible. Where is the line drawn? For this work I collected over 2500 different questions from people of all ages. You have probably asked yourself some of these questions today. Some you will find bizarre. Some will be boring. But why?

Influencing artists: Sol LeWitt, Rosalie Gascoigne, Ruark Lewis, Tsang Kin-Wah, Nam June Paik, Bill Viola
