Out of my database of thoughts I create forms in space. Inspired by the technical developments I started to rewrite my own form language to enlarge the spectrum of possibilities in abstraction and its expression.
I am aware that there are no limits to forms in space but reality dictates my personal reach. All things considered: there are still infinite possibilities to explore and ways to fill in my inevitable desire.
