Dome on the square of the De Stuers building in Maastricht, May 2020

In my work i pursue a state of dreamyness. The dome and the clay it is made of are catalysts of this dreamyness; a safehaven that shields from the outside world and gives space for the inside world. Perhaps the seclusion that such a space gives grants openness in mind and creativity. Strange paper beings came into existence. Seemingly born out of the vicinity of this dome. But perhaps they existed all along and is the dome what made me able to see them clearly. I simply try to follow this openness, this playfulness, and investigate what it has to offer.
