The assumption that the world around me has a fixed measure is broken constantly. I am wrapped up in a recurring transformation process of creation, organization of the created, and the destruction of it. This process takes place not only around me but also in myself. How can I then form an idea of the world and of myself if I do not also depict the gaps, the questions, and the change? With my room-filling multimedia installation, I try to find a possible form of representation for this state.
