About the art
I have always expressed my emotions through positive and joyful works, regardless of the medium.

I cannot say whether being a spatio-temporal synesthete has any influence on my work (a few additional synaptic connections between certain regions of my brain allow me to experience time as a spatial construction). The point is that typographies, spatio-temporal series of digits, words that read backwards, letters that "fly away" and follow their own logic, etc. are part of my inner workings: a nice mess in a way!
