Introduction

Rather than an object, a plant occurs to me as a moving space, as a parallel universe. They make me aware of a different time flow. Beside this, their presence is silent. Rooted in the ground they're immobile and seems motionless as a rock. But their silence is their disguise. A plant changes by growing and a tree can turn itself slowly in order to get better light circumstances. It's this movement peculiarly which touches me strongly and gives me a magic feeling. These changes are invisible in the moment, aren't to experience, they take place outside of my conscience. Only the history of the movement gets revealed. For example you can see the rotation of a tree by the development in the structure of the bark. Or the change of a plant by its expansion trough repetitiveness. The notion that there are different time levels raises for me the question what is space about? In the fundament I don’t understand it while at the same time I have a one to one relation with it through my senses. Almost al my work is an attempt to intensify this connection in order to understand the importance of it, rather than search for a definition.
