°About video-works and art-works: the different approach
“My background is physics, and since 1992 I am experimenting with water and light. My art and design work has been focused on creating “water and light” phenomena of aesthetic value, designed to become the key visual elements of my art- and design works.

Above photos 1, 2, 3 show the example of “Monolithe”, a marble sculptural element with a slow descending motion pattern of lighted water drops (please refer to the page “Art and Design work” on this website).

Obviously the final objects must combine the needs for an aesthetic quality of their “solid design” and the aesthetic quality of the motion of lighted water drops.

When creating “water and light” video-works, I am no more concerned with the aesthetic quality of the solid object. Experimenting and design efforts have only one goal: the artistic result produced by the two key visual performers: water and light.

Consequently, a technical “device” is designed and built just for this purpose (photos 4, 5). The image of photo 6, the birth of a lighted water drop from a water film, shows the result.”
