I like to examine and exploit daily minutiae. It is not so difficult to do really. To examine, I freeze things in motion. I call this the glacialis phenomenon. To exploit, I use repetition and simplicity to create an illusion of grandeur. I believe it is not what more can you add to make it better; I believe it is what else can you take out to make your concept clear - simple and easy to understand, not confusing. After all, chaos without order is just chaos. So why confuse yourself and others more?
