By using concepts and transformations I try to re-signify the everyday use of things.
My repetitive forms and installations are a dialogue between the object and aspects of our life, nature, space and situations we find ourselves to be surrounded by everyday. The transformation of simple recognizable objects draws the attention to contemporary ideas about consumption, recycling and the significance of things. Each life is a library of formes, found or collected, to be rejoined and reassembled to a new object.
