"I believe I have an extraordinary memory. Everything I've beheld in this world has been compiled in a huge usable mental catalogue of images. I strive for an encyclopedic achievement there. I’d like to be a mirror reflecting the cause of all things, being the personification of the world's memory. The world I encounter in my memory is pictorial and cryptic. I run into multifarious images, odd beings, terrors and ghosts there. To reveal the enigma of the memory pictures, I dare to descend into an everlasting image-producing abyss in my memory and explore the undercurrent with a fluoroscopic vision. This dangerous descent is a sensuous, psychological and sometimes extrasensory activity as an alchemist of memory. I try to make 'thought-pictures' or 'puzzle-pictures' there, which are questions rather than answers."
