Why do you believe in cross-border collaboration?
The future will come sooner than we think. Actually, we live in the future already.
I would rather try to be prepared for the changes that future technology will bring not only on a cyber-technical but also on a cyber-human level.
Although technology has more and more inventions to bring and will change our everyday reality, we need to stay awake and communicate as persons, to know our neighbours better, and collaborate.
I believe that crossing beyond our own egos and staying aware of people’s gentle states of imagination can bring us a brighter future.
Your personal driving force?
As a cinematographer – my driving force is to explore the endless ways we perceive our visible and invisible worlds.
As a human – my driving force is gravity.
