I was spending some of my days in nature, camping. There were some objects such as the seatless chair in the frame and a table next to it in the middle of bushes. I decided to use the table as a tripod and add the seatless chair to my context.

Arno Rafael Minkkinen has been a great influence, towards my way of creating a surrealistic atmosphere using my own body. Minkkinen with his "Fosters Pond" (2000), "Self-portrait, Fosters Pond", Andover, Massachusetts, (1999) and more of his work were greatly inspiring. Along side to Minkkinen, I have looked upon Francesca Woodman with her "Self-portrait talking to Vince", Providence, Rhode Island, (1977)
