Catalogue Note

"I've always been interested in trying to figure out the fundamentals, what life is and where we come from, which predates my fascination with people and social interaction. Maybe there are two strands, this very fundamental interest in light and what it can do and how I can shape it, the alchemy of that, and, on the other hand, the very real, the very being-in-this-worldliness with others, and the desire to be intensely connected to other people."
