And what will become of the emptiness of space? Quite often it appears as just a shortage. The emptiness is regarded as the lack of fullness of cavities and intermediate spaces. But, perhaps, just emptiness is akin to one’s own place of place and therefore it is not absence, but pro-creation. (...) Emptiness is not nothing.

It is also not absence. In a sculptural incarnation, emptiness comes into play as a search-throwing admission, the creation of places.
Heidegger, “Art and Space”.
For me, light is a decisive factor. I have always been interested in the objective nature of light, as an electromagnetic wave or particle stream, and our subjective perception of it. In my works, I investigate the interaction of light and objects made of different materials: glass of several kinds, stone, asphalt, gold leaf, fabric. Objects are static and arranged in a certain sequence, they interact with each other, emphasizing the integrity of each other. There is a situation when mutualinuence deprives objects of their usual function, but turns it into a work.
