I have the need to transform text, which occupies me, into sculptures. Through an almost manic-meticulous process of deconstruction of the words, I break statements and information to newly assemble them into sculptures. The unknown information between the lines and in-between the letters drives the morphogenesis of my objects. This method of working is based on my instinct. To maintain the authenticity of the text, I count the exact number of the respective letters with numerical pedantry.
My sculptures are formed out of different organic and anorganic materials, in the size of miniatures right up to room size installations.
