During the process of making work for the exhibit, I drew everyday, for a minimum of three hours, and eventually the ideas began to flow, as though a door to my subconscious had been unlocked. I allowed myself the freedom to put it down onto paper, without overthinking it. Like recording a daydream, mining the subconscious , the imagination. 

This exhibit features an installation that focuses on these drawing sessions titled Brain.Storm. which simulates my creative process. The rest of the work in the exhibit all stems from these drawing sessions.
