Threading crystal beads started my journey into the world of light. During a year of art residency in India I used gemstones and crystals as art material and found what was to be the object of my artistic wonder : light. Light became a medium and a subject of exploration at the same time, merging spiritual, philosophical and scientific mysteries.
Fascinated by the concept of the web of life and the net of the god Indra, a metaphor used to illustrate the interdependence and interpenetration of life in Buddhist philosophy, I created series of netted like objects combining crystals, gemstones and light.
