New York was one of the first major journeys I got to go on, basically on my own with friends. An educational trip, learned a lot about the States. As my friend Alex saw the whole world basically in 10 months, i’ll have to take longer then that. Just so i don’t forget I saw the trump towers, the Freedom tower (new world trade centre building), Harlem, Soho as well as Noho (less famous), saw a musical on broadway, the Statue of Liberty, the brooklyn bridge, and many more. I now know why Jay-z fell in love.

Dioramas reconstructing scenes from Mr. Ai Weiwei’s illegal detention in China in 2011, when he was held for 81 days in a secret prison guarded by a paramilitary unit. Six fiberglass dioramas depict, at half-scale, his often banal daily existence as a captive of the vast government security apparatus.

It’s amazing when you look back how every point worked the way it did so that I can be where i am today.
