"A common denominator in my work is the multiplicity of elements, as if I am not saying one person’s story but a repetition of events and stories happening over and over again. In 'Badge Of Honor, there is not one watch, but three watches. There is not one sneaker, but eight sneakers. It almost feels as if we need to multiply, just in case...It’s almost as if we always going to war. We might not have enough tomorrow, so let’s just buy a whole bunch now..."
