About:

”Horror vacui” means ”The compulsion to make marks in every space”.(artlex.com) In Latin it means ”Fear of the empty space”. The empty space is an anonymous space. In this space I make my own marks. In this project I search for and investigate my own pattern, to find my personal language. I was interested in the possibility to make a pattern that follows certain rules, but at the same time it grows to be a unike sample of its kind. A little bit like genes gives us a certain fundamental starting point and then we develop in symbiosis withe the surroundings.
