As a multidisciplinairy artists he spends an important part of his artistic creativity on exchanges and collaborations with other artists, scientists and experts from various disciplines. His work is in direct dialogue with his environment.

He is a member of the ArtScie Exhibits community Berlin [Humboldt University] and co-founder of the Milena principle, [an independent international art platform operating in Europe].
