My projects tell stories about ways of making that are usually not visible or that are slowly disappearing. Fascinated by the origin of crafts, traditional manufacturing processes and historical environments. I strongly believe that it is important to maintain these knowledge of specific ways of making within our surroundings. It tells us a lot about culture, history, traditions, makers and needs to reflect on our society nowadays. A transparent and physical process are meaningful to me. To work in a visible manner I want to make people enthusiastic about; how to deal in a honourable and conscious way within our living habitat. With this mission I prefer to work together with various makers, workshops, producers, institutes and inhabitants.
