I often wonder about a lot of things. I see beauty in everyday objects, moments, and even the smallest situations, and like to take time to study them. Through this curiosity, I find joy in the discovery of their look, feel, sound and experience. In What Happens When Nothing Happens I carefully capture and display a collection of my everyday treasures.
‘That which we generally don’t notice, which doesn’t call attention to itself, which is of no importance; what happens when nothing happens, what passes when nothing passes, except time, people, cars, and clouds’ – Georges Perec (1993)
This project stems from my concerns about the stress and pressure that prevail today, and increasingly lead to burn outs. By showing people my view of the world, I hope to inspire them to also look at their surroundings in a different way, take time for themselves and the world around them, and slow down for a moment.
