Backyard of the Kuenstlerhaus Dortmund, 2003

In a glass-fronted backyard shed the individual objects seem to be squeezed out of a crater-like bulge. The impression of an energy-loaded process (of genesis) inside this spot is emphasized by the light which emerges from the opening.
The objects seek to disperse, one is to be found outside the glass pane.
This effect makes the dividing line between inside and outside melt away, as do the fallen leaves from outside spread inside the room and the outside courtyard environment reflected in the glass pane. Moreover, the organic restless structure of the leaves increases the dynamic order. A spot of life has emerged in the courtyard; its further development inside and/or beyond the terrarium-like room remains open.
