At the misa.art POP-UP at Gallery Weekend Berlin, the artist shows his installation “The Time They Have Leftvisualizing people’s remaining time to live 

What three words would you choose to describe your exhibited work at misa.art POP-UP?  

Life, time, goals.  

What is your work process like? 

Everything starts with a thought. The rest is try, discard, try, discard, try. 

What story does your artwork tell?  

For a more conscious approach to one's own finiteness.  

How do you overcome self-doubts when creating?  

Self-doubt is unpleasant, but it is crucial for personal development. That's why I never want to overcome them. 

Where do you take your inspiration from?  

Everything I have been allowed to experience so far - and had to. 

What reactions do you hope to receive by your observers?  

We know that we should be mindful with limited resources, but make and too little aware that our lives are also one.
