The inspiration for this project came with the awareness of the fact that if you look at art, illustrations, drawings – anything creative, it’s really nice and inspirational if there’s space inside, an other dimension (this can be abstract too). This makes looking at it a little bit like meditation, instead of thinking, you get to be inside for a moment. With this realisation, the project Micro Matter came to life.
Micro Matter consist of a series of miniature worlds floating inside upside down glasstest tubes. Towering houses, sky scrapers, campsites and a water tower, each sculpture inspires the next. All pieces are handmade and of every world there is only one.
The Micro Matter series is designed to take you out of this world for a moment, into another. Empty your mind while looking at them, a small space of peace in your home. Because of the glass, the worlds get to be in a small dome, completely closed off from the outside world.
