I grew up in Coney Island, Brooklyn. That was the beginning of my interest in ‘invented worlds’. The idealised version of reality which is made just to suit our imagination. This ties in with Dante’s imagining of the Inferno, Ovid’s world of transformations, and even the Anthropocene. In fact, it is the inspiration for all of my work.
