Note about 'Shiny Ruin': What will be left when everything tangible is gone? You.
During the process of development and production I don’t think about the meaning or importance of a work. One step follows the next until the expression convinces me. Later, when it comes to capture the work and find a title, I reflect the piece by taking all factors into account which affected me during the process. And this is also the time when I take notes about it. Ultimately, however, the image and title can only give a hint, because what each one sees, interprets or senses in interaction with the work, can never be grasped. Above you find the note i took about my work 'Shiyn Ruin'.
