Daniel Szczuka- Performer & Designer


What are your influences?

My influences revolve around the strange and the unusual and questioning reality. A child of Fantasia, Allegro Non Troppo, and the early indie animation scene, I've grown a connection to the raw creation that animation allows, and the imagery that comes from it. I also love watching that imagery extend into live action forms and the scenes of pure imagination that can spawn from it.

What do you find inspiring?

My inspiration is the power of a person's mind and the raw imagination, unadulterated and unhindered, that stems from it. I strive for such free-flowing ideas in myself, and I am driven by the desire to create inspiration in others. The idea that a piece I create or help build, could spawn it's own piece in the mind of someone else, is a deeply seeded passion of mine.
