Luca Curci – Which are your artistic projects for the future? Is there any possibilities for a new participation in some Italian exhibitions?
Mika Qatsi – My artistic production is now directed to a precise and spontaneous overview of reality where nothing seems to happen, a choice dictated to suggest a closer look at what surrounds us, in sharp contrast to overdose of exceptionality that there is daily administered by a media bombardment that makes us insensitive to the details.
