I combine photography and ceramics. These two very different media have a special similarity. In both the ceramic and photographic processes something dynamic is transformed into a fixed form. My works express the interplay between change and permanence and between fluidity and solidity.

While photographing images from old library books I made rhythmic motions. Those experiments resulted in a series of vibrating or trembling images of ruins that subtly seem to come alive. Next to these photos I made a ceramic sculpture. Clay moves during the drying and firing. I fire it until it nearly melts in the kiln just before it solidifies and establishes its permanent shape. The outcomes are solidified movements and moving stills.
