    "To name the people, teachers, writers, filmmakers, painters, musicians, places, animals and technology that inspire me would require a website in its own right. Therefore briefly summorizing the sources of inspiration by mentioning my parents, family, friends, the work and writings of Sigmund Freud, Melanie Klein, W.R.D. Fairbairn, Bert Hellinger and Hanna Segal, Van Morrison's studio album 'Astral Weeks', the Andes, Himalayas, Sahara, Wadden- and North Sea, gulls and the Sennheiser 416. With some rare exceptions I shy away from publishing film- and video works on-line, being expressions designed for collective experience, projected on a screen or the wall, lounce-bound, with an audience flocked together."
