Interview

Your film is about?
Variations is a study of forms dominated by abstraction.
The film evokes the work of Kazimir Malevich and abstraction art,
Which can be assigned to certain sequences in film.

How did you start with film? And do you have an educational background in art or film?
I started when I was 19 years. Now I"m 21. At the beginning I created a simple video abstract and experiments.
I have no artistic training, I am self-taught

Could you explain how you work, what themes or concepts you use and what is important to you?
Important tags of my art: color, abstraction, audiovisual synthesis.
I am looking for harmony in abstraction.
I"m also interested in color and form.
I am looking for spirituality in art

How long do you usually work on one project?
The final piece is created about two months, but
A lot of training before it.

Do you carefully plan the production process or do you work more intuitive?
Very intuitive.

How does the title relate to the work, and how do you find a fitting title?
Title much suggests, but does not need to be attached to it too.

Where do you get your ideas or inspiration from?
Modern painting, art theory and contemporary music.

How important is sound in film, and if you use sounds, do you create your own or use existing?
Always use my own music in film. Sound is as important as the image. Music = abstraction

How important is the reaction to your film by the audience?
It is important but not the most important. My opinion is crucial.

What is your next project about?
Next project: a film about death (video art or abstraction).
