In my book objects I want to make the invisible visible. The traditional book is determined as a carrier of words and language. In the context of communication and narration, information is given that is mentally and individually converted into images in the brain. The pictures in a picture book serve to illustrate the story and provide atmospheric help. My book reliefs are far removed from these applied claims. They have their origin more in early scientific forms of collection such as herbaria or collector's albums, or in the glorification of religious objects of relics, as well as trivial rituals of the commemorative exchange of poetry albums. Things are not what they are and people give them meaning, names and concepts.
