There are many opposite poles in my works: line and surface, open and closed space, transparent and opaque components, angled and round, smooth and rough, and many others. And that’s how I approach the material, as well. I think it’s interesting to do something with material that isn’t inherent in it. For example with glass, which has a separating function, but is also transparent at the same time. That a broken edge is like a line. That are various movements in opposite directions, which are important to me to create a dialog.
