‘Absorb’ shows an alternative reality, a way to avoid or change reality. Reality within the context of the present era and dealing with events in our daily world.
I think that ‘behind’ or ‘in’ any reality an entire world could open and not knowing exactly what that is, is what triggers my search for alternative realities.
I live in a rustic and basic environment with forest and nature. Primarily, my daily presence in nature is to be there on the spot. Every day I walk in the woods, generally with a camera, trying to capture special events or moments and making contact with this reality. I thereby explore the entire scope of reality for other structures or systems. In this way I search for boundaries in reality; during this process new ideas can emerge for my artworks.
