Where is utopia?
Outside a regular mind, where artist should spend time telling each other various entertaining stories. The metamorphoses of our ideas are going to utopia. Never but each moment it’s influenced the way we need. Each day begins with subtly feeling the beauty and unspoken idyll, the first renaissance. Subconsciously, connecting this concept with the cultural context, I see the facade of another reality. But the main thing in the community that everyone can handle. The limit of meanings ends here, but endless in utopia. So it is very close to the borders of the usual. It makes sense to look behind them.

What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?

How Much Do the Myths of History Impact on the Lives of the Present?

What is your idea of earthly utopian human?
Let’s be honest, the recognition of the endless freedom of real hippies was closest to the topic. Today you have to prove that this is acceptable. To resonate, to find a place for a utopian person is a great social phenomenon.

To what faults do you feel most indulgent?
Simplicity and stereotyped thinking even close people. Еveryone learns to see and feel all his life. Also even the most misguided can nderstand where the point of light.

What is your favorite virtue?


What is your Utopian action?
