Statement

A rockpile ceases to be a rockpile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral. / Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

In our life, we are surrounded by things that we use on a daily basis. These are common objects, disposable items or food. These things are so known to us that they do not bear any surprises.

My work is about these common goods. It fascinates me that there is a lot to discover in this seemingly all too known field. All that is needed is leisure and something that I call a ‘loving eye’. Prepared like this, one spots interesting surfaces, colors, shapes, and much more. The ‘loving eye’ for these small things sparks off enthusiasm. And the enthusiasm is the incubator for seeing new potentials in the seemingly well known.

Especially intriguing for me is to set these goods, to which we have an already plugged in relationship, into a new association with us and our body.
