I love to analyse the common, ordinary things. I like to search for their essence. I observe, analyse, dissect, inventorise and catagorise. When you dissect a product, collection, archive, interior, word or space to see what parts it consist of, you make all parts equal. As in an atlas, a subject becomes flat. I like to detach things from their original context and associations. It creates distance and space to make my own associations.
It fascinates me what happens when you start building up again these 'blank' parts. How diverse the stories become with the same parts. It makes me question why things are as they are. Exactly therefore all those various outcomes often become the end result of my processes.
