Most of the time I start my projects making observations in public space by using photography, this helps me to observe and draw conclusions. Although the photographic medium used to be the basis of my practice, a photograph can now be a starting point of a drawing, which can lead to a scale model. Subsequently, the scale model can lead to a sculpture in an installation or be used as an object in a performance in a video work. I also
find it interesting to bring the scale model back to the flat surface, by filming or photographic the object. The transformation in scale provides an interesting tool to suggest the volume of an architectural structure.

I find the ideologies with which architectural spaces around us are designed highly fascinating; for example: the modernist idea that daylight and space are primarily conditions for human wellbeing and happiness. Windows, walls and façades are a recurring motive in my work.

In my most recent project A Building’s Memory, I am investigating areas in the urban landscape in which architecture is in a state of transition. Areas where houses are being built up or where architecture is ‘eroding’ and buildings are being demolished. With the eroding of our houses, our ideals about how these spaces should look like are shifting as well.
