"What drives me is the magnanimous artistic vision and ambitions of Louis XIV, who leaves us with an unparalleled interactive work of art.  Through representation of his conceptual world, Versailles continues to transmit the glorious personification of the absolute power of the Sun King by Divine Right ... it is my sensing of the perpetual mystique of this artistic legacy that continues to fascinate and inspire me ... I look to the past to better understand the present in a highly complex world which continues to revolve around human persona."
