An emergency entrance leads to the inner labyrinth. I stand in front of it and hesitate. Suddenly a jolt, then confusion, until I eventually realise that the entrance is an exit… First of all I try to create an inner sphere in which the horizon has no edge: the nth dimension, a paradox that confuses the distinction between inside and outside. This is why I often refer to my art as a ‘paraduct’. Invent a problem!

Either a thing or dematerialisation. This is about fact and given, which means that you either let the problem (labyrinth) become a thing or you leave the thing to be just that. From this confrontation emerges the labyrinth. Then the problem starts to solve itself.
