Snitt, 1994, Belgian black marble

The essential comes not from the things themselves but from what binds them in relations. No object is seen without light and no light is visible without matter. The light reveals the objects, leads as well as misleads the vision. We constantly encounter physical phenomena which we are not awere of or which we do not notice. My work lies in approaching these. On paths of light waves and particles like in optical phenomena we can meet "events" which will lead us to this "other".
