Things that look like other things
I am interested in perception, what happens between seeing and understanding what we see. In this series of photographs the red items (made of rubber, cloth and plastic) somehow resemble organic living matter, perhaps what one could imagine inner body parts to look like. What is interesting is the materiality and tactility of things. The surface pattern together with the form (outline and three dimensionality) of the object create a specific combination that we can understand as style. In a certain combination, seemingly arbitrary and abstract qualities of matter create a certain illusion, make us recognize the object and place it amongst other known objects in our consciousness.
