What is your source of inspiration for your work?

I still have no idea how all these things creep into my mind…

 

For you, is the inspiration the result of a process where it comes at any time?

I’m always looking for interesting things to inspire me, but I am not really aware of it because it all comes so naturally.

Nothing comes out of nothing, so I am always struck by things, which then lead to something new.
