Artists are persons of flesh and blood, who, in my view, have a social task. Like a bank director should serve the community, an artist should serve the community. This is how it was, centuries ago, and this is how it still is today when in 'primitive' Africa a ceremonial dance is performed. That dance will be accessible and understood by everyone in the community, young and old. That dance has also only one goal, to generate community: community between man and his fellowman, between man and nature. The spirit of the dance serves the community.
Films and images, I believe, can dissolve borders and limitations, they can open our eyes and hearts and bring us home, to a place where we have contact with ourselves. Without that contact, we will not be able to have contact with others or with nature. So in ourselves lies the key to community and happiness. Not in our thinking, but in our hearts. Therefore my films work first and foremost upon the heart.
It is important to me to create work that is accessible and can be understood by a wide audience. Through my films I want to serve the community, contributing to the consciousness and reality of unity and harmony.
