/restrictions

Why do we live our lives the way we do? This question fascinates me.

Restrictions, externaly established or internaly set, shape our live and are part of our value system.

I use self-imposed restrictions to focus my work. This focus allows me to go deeply into the matter of my project - the idea, the concept, the materials.

In this project, I worked with nothing but a latex-covered work glove. What I first perceived as a constraint, opened my eyes for the numerous possibilities to work with once I saw the restriction as a focus and accepted it.
