My work is marked with speeches, either as texts or as spoken dialogues. These utterances are not political, sociological or ironic. Rather, they are a form of resistance to reason. I am interested in conspiracies, scientific aberrations, impostures, and other types of sophisticated yet false reasoning. It is my desire to give free rein to the inner voice that whispers that the earth is flat. The stories I construct are not exhaustive but fragmented, and always invite interpretation. I adopt spectacular themes and ruin them.
