The material installation and photographs stand side-by-side as equal parts in Ways. Photography opens a new level of perception. The camera reveals and opens new spaces. Photography creates a room of its own. The play of light and shadow on the leafy canopy continues on the stretched red threads and integrates them into this vivid atmosphere.
I enjoy working outdoors because I'm not constricted there. The artwork tells me, in the course of becoming, how much space it wants.
Ways is sort of a “guerilla installation”; therefore very few people happened to see it. Some passers-by were surprised to see me installing all this red thread in the light green oak forest.
My photographs reveal the finished weaving, the back and forth of this reluctant red wool thread. The camera opened a new view, entering a created space between two lateral thread “walls”, bordered by the shapes of the trees, and forming a 3-dimensional drawing /sculpture.
The name Ways reflects my approach. First the thread blocks the usual ways to go (as my photos could block the usual way to see). But it is not only an obstacle on a predetermined course. If you are curious and willing, then you can discover new pathways. And when looking even closer, like the camera’s eye, you can discover spaces and forms built by the two-dimensional lines intersecting in space. This presents a new way of looking, of discovering something unexpected.
