Statement

2014 A New Generation.

During 2013, I have experimented more and for the first time, I now feel truly and genuinely "home". It's like the novel has opened. The poetry is starting to emerge and I feel more and more music in my work. A new generation, 2014, onwards. Yeah so, I feel it right now and that gives me a lot of substance, stability and greater depth, and that is what I strive for.” (Bender, 2014).
