Statement In my projects I don’t want force participation on people. If you look for example at online networks and advertisements from companies, it’s obvious that most of the messages contain invitations asking you to participate. It gives the feeling that everyone wants something from someone. This economy is based on information, time and money. My economy is focused on the experience, and trying to inspire other people into creating something with their own ideas.
