As humans, we can decide to destruct or construct. Masking tape, which is used in abundance in  my work – a mass produced material generally regarded as useless – is used as a building block. Like molecules or bricks this tape, in bits and pieces, is repeatedly stacked until something is created which can be seen as a landscape, layers built up by time—and quiet attention. This is then used as a background for the visible image, or the other way around.
