I am engaged in the material glass because of its great potential to create meaning in a critical,
artistic context that can continuously be challenged beyond general views of what glass can be.
The motive force in my work is the idea of glass as a lens or membrane with both distortion and
clarity that I use to focus, reflect, and enlarge – in brief transform – what is experienced through the
lens and what it means to sense through vision.

By initiating active ways of looking and fusing this with spatial and tactile experiences, I create works
that do not only envelop the eye of the viewer, but also interject into our cultural layers of memories
and events.

With a watchful eye to systems and utopic ideas, my motivation for working with patterns and
geometric structures is an occupation with the decorative, in search of ways to challenge, how we
perceive the world around us as organized or chaotic.

My latest works are series of sculptures inspired The Crystal Chain Correspondence (1919-1920) in
which like-minded architects, artists and thinkers described their utopian ideas of beneficent
architecture and visions for an ideal society, built entirely out of colored glass and steel.
My sculptures consider philosophical ideas about glass architecture, and the colossal impact the
Crystal Chain imagined it could have on society. The work is driven by curiosity to understand and
visually interpret the construction, scope and complexity of utopian ideas.

By giving physical form to ideas that were intended only as an exercise of the mind, the sculptures
can be regarded as a type of an architectural model, suggesting a transformation of scale in the
imagination of the viewer.

Subtle optic displacements in the experience of my works entail the impossibility of a fixed point of
view, and the surprise and discovery coming from realizing that what we see is of another
nature than first assumed.

The not-yet known and unseen emerge from doubt and unsafe ground, which I enlarge in my works
and suspend within the transparency of glass.
