Gravity of Centres
"Curiosity and wonder is my primary motivation.
The world at large, in all its connections and movements, forms the main focus of my work, finding expression in journeys, installations, interventions, photo series, documentaries, sculptures, film essays, books, and performances among others. I’m questioning the origins of nature through mapping the intersections between man-made and ‘natural’ forms of reality.
I wonder how ‘landscapes’ are given shape by people and vice versa. This stems from my urge to discover, order and represent the world’s (natural) phenomena on the macro and micro level. For many of my works I collaborate with scientists and other professionals from different background. I’m interested in how art and science can reinforce each other. With these cross-disciplinary collaborative projects I intent to open up alternative routes to lucid and ‘visual comprehension’ of scientific research. Among other I’m interested in the coherence between mysticism and science."
