Based on the molecular structure of quartz, a basic constituent of sandy soils such as that found around Berlin, a crystalline scaffold is filled with objects and images. Part of an ongoing series, the work cumulatively inhabits a fixed structure, establishing connections and trails within it. Elements of urban geology, suggestions of intimate narratives and other significant fragments form constellations of competing meanings, contending with complexity and boundaries.
