Over the last two years I have focused on the extraordinary complexity and beauty of science.
The phenomena of light, gravity and microscopic cellular structures can be more fully understood and revealed, using scientific methods. These then have the potential of contributing to new knowledge.
The scientific perspective and approach makes me curious, why some topics remain questions and others get relatively quickly answered.
I have translated these explorations and questions sculptures.
In my sculptures the inside of the glass spheres turns inwards, pushing into it’s own void. The space around the spheres is configured to appear to blend at intersecting corners, where the materials merge and coexist. The sculptures explore the space they occupy and the context in which they are positioned.
I expose what is normally out of sight. Using cross- sections, magnification and transparency the objects show which is hidden and literally below the surface, creating new vantage points and conceptual understandings of how we understand the material world.

Born and raised in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I graduated at the Glass department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam in 2015.
I use glass as a material to find the interfaces of art, science and philosophy.
