“I treat my three-dimensional pieces as light traps or secret blueprints, in which by controlling the placement of its components, I’m able to create intriguing 3-D containers,” “Their designs are then fully revealed by applying or pouring light into them. In a sense, light becomes the ink that reveals the design by following a 3-D template.”
