“In 2007 I was invited to participate in working together with an international group of artists during a boat cruise. A steamship that was named after Rimsky-Korsakov sailed us down The Irtysh and Ob Rivers and their inflows towards The Arctic Circle. It was a time of High Water, White Nights and Full Moon.In one of the villages that we passed, I came across a book  “Five Weeks in a Balloon” by Jules Verne. From this book I have wrote down quotes in a travel diary.”
