About the speaker

Everything vibrates. Everything moves. This fact can be proofed by the sense of hearing, when diving into the invisible where the slightest movement is detectable trough sound. This is my fascination and my research, the moment when we start listening with our whole body. My work is for ears, minds and eyes, for cushions, carpets, paper, trees, animals, rivers and empty spaces. It is for bodies, not for chairs. Everything is sound.
