This creativity is an expression of the fascination with objects, collecting them and finding creative ways to transform them. It uses the contrast of static order of geometric forms with material and dynamic nature of objects, which is most visible in the process of decay. This strategy was also translated to the gallery space treated with artistic creativity. With the use of reconfiguration, analysis, cross-section or by fragmentation of images and samples taken from the edge of modern organisation systems (such as waste, pieces of wood, animal carcass, parasitic fungi, fragments of human flesh) he tries to create new relations and an alternative system to organise reality.
