How existing objects or products live their life, forms (naturally) my thoughts of those things. The evolution, meaning, function, form, appellation, relation with the body, context, … of the utensil, design object or art object is what intrigues me. In particular it is the body related and everyday object that appeals me the most. The potential poetry it carries, guides me trough their interpretation. It results in stand-alone pieces and/or research-based series of objects made by a material or graphical compilation, assemblage or interference. I want to question and go back to the very first moment our society imposes us to see something in a certain way. To create a world following my own values, I play within my thoughts, while the making (as in crafts) is my tool to find out and visualize. In short I wonder:  “What meaning do things carry in relation to our everyday life?”
