In my installations, the functional aspect of architecture either no longer exists or has been altered completely. Daily spaces — the architecture we take for granted — are very often where my work starts. The spaces I create become a poetic fiction for the viewer. Symbols and metaphors are hidden in doors, cabinets, living rooms, mirrored rooms, or inside a swimming pool.
