MA work

Nothing is lost, nothing is created; everything is transformed. I found lost photos and I found lost objects. I transformed them. I covered them. I watch a dialogue between the visible and invisible, the past and the present.

Ah, the mysteries grazed by ordinary things in our very midst! To think that right here, on the sunlit surface of our complex human life, Time smiles uncertainly on the lips of Mystery! How modern all this sounds! And yet how ancient, how hidden, how full of some other meaning besides the one we see glowing all around us!

Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet (translated by Richard Zenith), Penguin Press, 2001
