"I placed in the convent several unstable formations composed from industrial glass: high above the yard of the convent was suspended a glass object, barely visible against the sky. The object was attached to the string in such a way that it could, driven by wind, move from place to place. The wooden object was carved out in such a way that the thin bottom was almost transparent. In collaboration with Dian Booth, I made in the corridors of the convent a performance with water drawings on floor."
