Work and influences

My interest is in finding the subtle rhythms that make up time and space in the constantly changing environment.

When describing a physical system by representation, various possible states can be predicted. Depending on how you observe it, the states that you see in one representation may not be the same in another representation. Spontaneous transitions occur in dynamic systems and a transient event can be made visible, although its position may be only one of various possible results.

The dynamics and relationships between the objects act themselves out in an intimate space, like characters in the theatre. My choice of colour is intuitive, decisions are made spontaneously.

I find Inspiration in New Science , for instance particle physics and the science of complexity and chaotic systems, Chinese and Japanese art, the Tao, animation and Kabuki Theater.
