Portrait        email:
My temporary installations explore the relativity of light and colour. They refer to existing (artificial) lighting conditions which makes the location dependent.
The wall-paintings are based upon digital photography, taken without flashlight and balanced white. Using computer editing, the combination of colour and form within certain parts of the photo are transferred into reality.
Likewise, digital photos of the ground beneath my feet were taken and computer edited  by similar techniques. The virtual is linked to the real.
