ABOUT MY SPACE

We live in a typical Amsterdam house from 1905, on the ground floor with a private garden and a garden shed that has been renovated to an atelier and acts as a guest house from time to time. We have furnished the house mostly with 60-70's Scandinavian original pieces. As of our little young daughter the house is welcoming children, but in case of an older child maybe the atelier in the garden can be turned to a second bedroom. Our kitchen is small but has all the necessary equipment for cooking as we do love to cook ourselves. The garden gives a great feeling of openness and you can enjoy the terrace with the morning sun as long as there is no rain.

ABOUT ME & MY WORK

Walking through the trap of virtual world, I am looking for the relation of space – time and identity within space time; investigating fragmentation of the mind and nuance of the identity. Is there a role of identity within space, space of identity, space as a memory, architecture as the man made landscape, historical space as our fragmental memory?  Are objects intelligent?   

I depart from the use of science in the era of logical positivism fascinated from the duality of the intermediary space of conscious and subconscious. Working other times in material sense and other times just in the contextual respect I use glass as my ‘brain lens’, observing the space from Person A to Person B to Object x. Observation isn’t just a spatial form enabling the de-fragmentation of the mind of the outer self to the inner world, but a conceptual space for the subject to become an object. transparency, mirroring and lenses are becoming the sense. What is the influence of an intermediary space, in our minds and to the way we perceive. What is happening in these moments of time in the visual images that we have, the ones that our embodied minds are adopting?

When the craft becomes the source of a provoking storytelling is where the material becomes the form we escape from
