The measure of pain related to a close death started a body of work that developed from a personal concern; how to analyze and reason about loss, love and fear. I relate these feelings to what I believe is beauty: the subtlety of instability, like grasping the calm before the storm. And trying to capture this fragility is that I alter objects from our ordinary life, giving them a new meaning. By putting water inside it, a light bulb becomes to me, a metaphor of the body. How, thanks to that frail border that is our skin, we develop all our feelings and thoughts, and how, ironically, a measuring tape can measure this body but not the feelings inside it.
