I believe that early memories closely represent a person before acquiring any values or moral beliefs and therefore, they depict human beings in their purest state. My characters share similar forms and generic features because as a kid, I did not see people as distinct. My current project is titled Mr. Balloon. Mr Balloon arrives to a family and stays with them for the rest of their life. The family shows Mr Balloon the world around him without questioning much about his existence. The Balloon is a symbol for a friend, a sibling, a newborn infant, or the beginning of life.
