How can you describe your art?
I believe writing or any kind of art is like a free fall because there's nothing holding you but you're only acting on the force of your creativity, which is empty, by the way. You start from scratch. You build something out of an empty space. The process is not the same, I think it's difficult sometimes to realise where your original or unique asthetic comes from. Sometimes you know and understand it right away and sometimes it takes time.
How do you know the right contents of your work?
When you're writing or creating any form of art, there are no boundaries anymore, your life, thoughts, imagination, art all fall into the same vessel and and you keep stirring it until you get what you desire.
