I am interested how the military used to be glorified and most people looked at battles as glorious and romantic. Today it is more about showing power and even though some people still think about the military as glorious, I think generally people look at it with horror and fear.

The deteriorating sites that have been abandoned are filled with memories of glory and horror. The military history, the cold war in relation to the contemporary situation, where the ghost of the cold war is still lurking about, is what I am reflecting upon as an artist.
