“Since several years I’m busy with collecting plastic caps, which were primarily intended for a large-sized object.
When it became clear that a realisation of this project is not possible because of taking far too much time, I started to research about new methods of converting my, in the meantime (because my whole surrounding helped to collect) immense accumulation of caps.
The caps itself are fascinating already by all their versatile colours, sizes, different transparency gradations, printings and reliefs, but not until the possibility of fusing, they appear in a new and fresh expression, away from their recognizable origin.
The process hereby is the most exciting and it’s surprising once again to see them change, fuse or observe their entire transformation. To see how the print curls, how transparent becomes opaque or the other way around, how a new structure or relief or complete new shape appear by heating and how different colours assemble in a new shape.
It is difficult to manipulate this process, in a way it goes by itself, and the appearance of the results are diverse and astonishing each time.”

“The physical world is transient, and it is grasped as a temporal world in Buddhism. I feel this real world again with something fragile.
On the other hand, something fragile causes me to yearn for something permanent
Birth (or being alive) is grasped as a temporal world in contrast with death as a permanent world in Buddhism, and they are not taken up as two different things, but as one like the front and back of a coin. It seems to me that something fragile would be functioning as a device to enable me to overlook both worlds simultaneously.”
