I am interested in the human body, its relation to clothing and the repetitive situation of dressing.
What does it mean to dress ourselves every day anew and to wear clothes on our body? For me
the act of dressing is a way of thinking about ourselves, about how we perceive ourselves or even
how we struggle with our own perception. These thoughts become materials, we cover ourselves
in textiles, we are the sculptor and the sculpture at the same time. 

Not only clothing, but also other everyday objects trigger certain behaviour patterns and shape
our way of thinking and living. I find it fascinating and frightening at the same time how all these
items exist in our lifes, representing standards, norms, practices and, in this manner, shape us subtly.
