Parallel (ongoing series)
Ever since I was a child I am interested in the form of things: lines, shapes, structures, material.
I can't help it always looking at the way the world is shaped. It feels like objects telling me their story in the way they appear to me.
I pay attention to the attempt of man to design, and literally: to order and to shape life. Getting a grip on time and space, and on transience. Getting balance with the help of materials and lines. If you need structure (in life) lines can guide you: a line is a tool to follow a path. And a line is one of the most basic elements of design.
