My works focuses on the perception of place and space. With the help of various media, such as sculpture, installation, photography and video, I investigate how we relate to the world around us. In addition to perception, I am also interested in human interaction with this world. How do we explore new places, how do we take up space and how do we map space? I have a great fascination for geographical and technical image languages such as maps, satellite images, building plans and manuals. They provide a schematic and seemingly objective representation of reality, but they also abstract and manipulate our image and interaction with the world. In my work I research and use these visual languages to give a new perspective on both the physical and the virtual world. The different interpretations of what place and space can be, from Isaac Newton’s absolute space to phenomenology, form the basis of my research. In the development of concepts and use of materials I mix abstraction and the visual distance of the eye with other sensory perceptions such as touch and smell.
   In addition to the individual perception and experience of place and space, I am interested in how we relate to other people, both at micro and macro level. How do we determine our own place and how much space do we occupy compared to the other? Where and why do we set boundaries or share space? This interest has taken shape in a number of projects and collaborations mostly together with Maarten Schuurman. Important elements are the individual versus the shared (work) space and the transition from private to public space.
