My work is an on-going dialogue with the matter. Experimentation is my working utensil, in other words, I can realize my plans through experimentation. Experimentation becomes part of my sculptures. It does not mean that I have to make a decision between two alternatives. I work together with the coincidence created by the experiment, and. build it into my object. I plan my sculptures in general, but because there is a great element of coincidence to work with I never know exactly what will emerge from the fire. I and coincidence create the sculpture together. Because I have not formulated an accurate vision in my mind about the sculpture, my expectations are not exact either.
The experiment consists of my decision about what area and how much of it I allow coincidence in the creative process. My decision is the conscious use of coincidence.
