The series "This is is what I am and this is what I do" includes 4 videos: ‘I am an apple peeler’, ‘I am a corkscrew’, ‘I am a can opener’, ‘I am a screwdriver’. In these videos I analyze the strange relationships that our society has with objects. We expect to find in them that sense of security that we aren't able to find within ourselves, the answers to questions we don’t know. In objects we look for happiness, for a direction to our lives. In these videos the objects talk to us about the relationships between us, that will put their worth in the right perspective. With simplicity they will demolish our illusions.
