The pulse of life’s rhythms is stored in the tensions between the tree rings. The inside and outside walls of the house contain memories of people’s lives, seasons, wind, rain and sun. The artist thus engages in dialogue with the living environment. Using cotton-fibre paper pulp, the artist has produced paper imprints obtained directly from the weathered wall of a farmhouse. The human skin is the body’s largest sensor, sending impulses between the internal and external environment.

Clothing, whether made from natural or synthetic fibers, protects us from our environment. At the same time, every form and every material conveys status and influences interpersonal communication, the interaction between experience, creativity and the expression of our state of mind, as well as representing the personal or the impersonal in our everyday lives.

Animal skins, leather, silkworm cocoons and plant fibers are materials that have helped or enabled mankind to further develop. Body language and the language of materials are expressions of the need to communicate – from person to person, to the environment and the living space, and for social intercommunication
