These objects have evolved from silence, from a cultivated stillness and reverence while working. They have become a connecting link, offering a passage into subtle realms of unknown destinations, an intermediate space between the outer and inner worlds, the seen and unseen. These objects now exist as a relatively permanent record of moments spent in such places, encapsulated in an earthly, tangible form.

Employing a playful game-like position, they describe ambiguous spaces and realities, while posing questions about their own nature – their origin and history, their material composition and weight. Alternating between seemingly weightless and impossibly dense, some works reference invisible forces of nature like gravity or a magnetic field, while others echo earthly growth and decay, geologic strata, relics from ancient civilizations, or rocks from the moon.
