Statement

The Ancient Greek word «kosmos» could be read as rhythm; as order; as the making of a pattern that could be traced again and again and be embodied in the cosmos as we understand it. In a way «kosmos» makes the cosmos visible.
Kosmos could also be read as adornment. Homeric epics describe how «kosmos» clothes the body as a second skin to make it appear.

Through my work I try to redefine «kosmos», designing adornments made of ordinary and overlooked everyday objects. Things that I de-construct and re-arrange in space/puzzles, that clothe the body while speaking of immaterial relationships: The precious and the non-precious; the beautiful and the ambiguous; the familiar and the unusual; the lasting and the ephemeral.
