"Communication to me is the greatest fascination in the universe. Without interaction, without communication who would we be? Questions about the core of interpersonal relationships and what defines our everyday interaction and our society, what makes culture what it is, what determines being human and what constructs our communication as such, have been on my mind since I was a child. They can be found as a red thread behind all my activities, which take place somewhere between mind, body, art and culture, between health, communication, therapy, creativity and psychology. "
