"I work with optical glass, photography and light. In my photography I search for patterns and ornaments rather than scenes,and I approach the motif so closely that it becomes an abstraction. The glass shuts the image in like a secret and the viewer must come quite close in order to see the image clearly. The inner walls of the glass rod mirror the image in a way that distorts the picture. Straight lines become curved, and these lines move when the viewer moves. Thus the glass rod gives the photograph a new dimension, an experience somewhat related to looking into a kaleidoscope."
