    I use figuration as a starting point.  Instead depicting the subject as an individual who as a clear identity, I use it as an excuse, as a discipline and as a bait for abstract possibilities. I dont know personally the subject and this allows me to create something as more universal as possible. Im just at the beginning of this process.
