Question 2: Why did you choose this profession?

Transcription


Well I chose this profession on one hand because it’s a profession that’s exceptionally important, because to be an artist is to transform consciousness, to change consciousness, it’s changing the mentality. You can get people to change their mentality by appealing to their emotions and that’s what artists do. All great works of art is something like a prayer, I think, something that’s extremely intense at the spiritual level. I think it has a definite impact on my perception and on our lives. I think that this is probably the reason I consider that being an artist is the most important thing a person can do.
