Research question

I am a Latvian Artist interested in social art as fascination, with goal to engage
with society. People seem to forget what socializing is, I mean, how do you see yourself
socializing? Is it talking together? Is it doing things together? Co-creating or co-
disrupting?
We can learn kinesthetically and we can learn how to use this tool more
effectively. I have created social art games, where collaboration and self improvement
becomes very important elements. I want to create effective educational workshops,
where digital and analog becomes coherent elements for our learning and development.
In my personal practise I debate between time and possibility to create art.
When I get a possibility to spend on art, I do it. I use all time I can afford to create. My
time is limited, I have to expect that my time can clock-out at any moment, at that
moment I cannot create anymore. Tools and systems in combination with modelling,
and systematization help me to gain more time to create art. With my own systems,
programs and mind maps I can achieve illusion of freedom in my artworld.
