The Netherlands, 1985
Thesis: Within Layers of Memory

(the) core-mantle

Just like animals I sometimes have the urge to flee. Unconsciously, I discovered that I wanted a comfortable space to get away, mute and dim the world outside. I started making an organic shape that feels natural as those spaces are rare in our everyday surroundings. They are rare in the sense of spatial experience, because 'the box' is the efficient and productive counterpart. This project is me at my core in being myself while making it, using my own language and forms. At the end this very personal space becomes relevant for everyone.
