What I seek to do in this photographic series is a non-elitist conceptual art, and I would venture to qualify it as naive. This is in contrast to the "traditional" conceptual art that often requires the public to be introduced to the world of art to understand. I want to create a feeling of freshness with the audience. The understanding of the work is done only by considering the photo or by reading the title, not more. The main theme is inner life and self-knowledge, all on a white background to really put the concept in the foreground. The premise of this series is quite simple, to make staging where people interact with an object, an object that is used for its primary function, but which is diverted from its context. This is what I call the metaphorical function of the object, and the use of this diverted object creates new subtleties in the feeling. As if the emotions were the colors out of a tube of paint and spread out on a palette of colors and that one could make infinite variations from these basic colors. I am inspired by Nelson Goodman's theories on cognitivism, that is, I try to bring to life new emotions or new sensitivity variants that will enlarge the emotional palette and thereby enrich the viewer.
