«I investigate the perception of space. I am interested in the sculptural qualities of empty space. I explore what is perceived as emptiness as a concrete form and a sensual experience.

My works are recordings of a performative process in which I dance with the void, with all senses (sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch, feeling, thought), at rest and in movement. Emptiness is not nothing, but emptiness is space, which fills up, expands and contracts in quiet density—phenomena which exceed far beyond my field of vision. The constant transformation refuses a straight perceptual process. For the mindful, the vibration of the void can be experienced at the edge of the invisible.

Energy is material. By the use of most simple and mundane materials, my works reveal themselves as sculptures with density and volume, yet weightless and without a fixed form.»
