"The most interesting place to make a sculpture for is the urban-public space. It rejuvenates and it confronts. I like to make a sculpture which creates dialogue (mentally and/or physically). It blends with the busy surroundings, but remains accessible: please do touch, do climb it. It lets people communicate and reflect on their senses. My favourite subject are stairs, which are a simple invitation to the people - they elevate and change perspectives."
