As for myself, my strategy always starts with some joke or a funny idea and then I will go very much
into research or theoretical base.
And then I will think about the presentation of the work in its simplest forms. So, that it’s not so
complicated. Then the audience would understand the work as soon as they see them. So, I think
this is the point when I consider my work as finished. But if I would develop it into a more
complicated or ideas or things that I would rather explain it in words, so I think that’s not an artwork
anymore because if you can explain something in words, why would you bother to do an artwork?
So, I think that’s basically the difference between artwork and then a thesis or not an artwork.
I focused mainly on psychoanalysis as my theoretical base and I am very much influenced by Slavoj
Žižek, the philosopher, and also I would keep myself updated by the most recent – how to say –
“heat topics” over the internet because I think people are interested in all certain kinds of things for a
reason. So, I would dig into this topic which is so heated in the present time and see what is the
thing behind it, what’s the so-called lack and desire that they have, that they represent in this kind of
passion for a certain thing and then I will try to analyze it with the skills I have theoretically and then
try do some more research. After that I would turn to these ready-made objects and see if I could
make something new out of it.
